Any procedure or guidelines on how to sketch the graph y=x^(5/2) and -2x^(1/2)? I know how it looks like but i had no ideas on the proper procedure of drawing them. Any tips? Thanks. (Happy)

Sorry, its y=x^(1/3) and not y=x^(5/2)... ^^

Try an xy table. Choose values for x, calculate the corresponding y values, and plot the points. You should be able to sketch the graph reasonably.
