    sketching the graph of function

    I used complete the square to solve this and my vertex was (-6/5, 39/75). I need a check on this.. Also, for the x intercept, i have to set the function equal to zero to get my x's, but i'm having trouble solving it.

    Sketching the graph of a function.

    the task is to sketch the graph of a following function: y=x^3 + x^4/4 when i am trying to find points where function cuts x-axis i simply solve x^3 + x^4/4 =0 which means there are two points (0,0) and (-4,0) anyway, when i am trying to find local extrema of a function i have to solve 3x^2...

    need help with sketching derivative

    If a question asks me to draw the derivative of a function and lets say the derivative is a parabola, how do I figure out if the parabola dips below the x-axis or stays above the x-axis and by how much on the y-axis? Lets say I know from looking at the graph of the function that the function is...

    Maxima/Minima, derivatives, and sketching graph help.

    I'm in a bit of a bind. First off, I'll start off with typing the question out: "Given critical points (3, -4) and (6, 0); interval of increase: (3, infinity); interval of decrease: (-infinity, 3). Find the local maxima/minima and sketch the graph." Looking at this information tells me that...

    Triple Integral Region Sketching

    I am instructed to graph the "shadow region" formed by the triple integral so that I may convert to polar, then evaluate. Sorry cannot find symbol to insert. Integral (0 to 2) Integral (-sqrt(4-y2) to sqrt(4-y2​)) Integral (0 to 2x+y) dzdxdy Following our example steps I tried to graph z=2x+y...

    Sketching a graph

    I have to sketch a graph of U( r)= U ((a/r)^12 -2(a/r)^6) It's the formula for the interatomic interaction between two atoms a distance r apart, where U and a are constants. I understand that it'll never cross the y-axis, but how do I deal with the unknown constants? Thanks.

    Help with Sketching Region in Complex Plane

    Hey guys, I am unsure about the steps needed to sketch the following region in a complex plane. It's the only question regarding the sketching of complex planes which I am unsure of the methodology use to approach. |z -3| = |z + 2i| I have done questions like |z - 2i| = 2 etc, never done a...

    Using the graph sketching strategy

    Hi all I wasn't sure which forum to post this in but it does contain calculus so I hope it's in the right place. I have to use the graph sketching strategy to sketch the graph of the function (6x-5)/(4-9x^2) I know this is a long process and I've been doing similar ones with no problems but...

    Graph Sketching ARRGHH!!

    { y }^{ 2 }\quad =\quad \frac { (x+1)(x-3) }{ (x+4) } okay so, I know its symmetric about the x axis because of y^2 y = 0 at x = 3 and x = -1 graph doesn't exist when y^2 < 0 so i did complete the square on the numerator and got (x - 1)^2 < 4 so x -1 < ±2 so for x < 3 and x < -1 the...

    Sketching x(t) and y(t) graphs for solution

    Hi, given the ellipse in the xy plane I have to sketch the x(t) & y(t) graphs for the solution. I have included a photo of the problem from the textbook (its problem # 24, the ellipse) as well as my attempt at a solution.

    Sketching the equivalence classes of R N x N

    Relation R on ℕ x ℕ ((a,b),(c,d)) R <=> a+b = c+d Ok I had to prove that R is an equivalence relation (Reflexivity, symmetry, transtitivity). I already did that. Second part is to sketch all equivalence classes of R. I dont understand or the way to sketch it. Do I have to draw a matrix? Or a...

    Sketching and Finding an Area between curves

    f(x) = 1/2 e^x and g(x) = sech(x). I have already worked out that there are no x intercepts for either graph and that f(x) intercepts the y axis at 1/2 and g(x) intercepts it at 1. when i tried to find the intercept between the two curves I got the x value = (log 3) / 2, making the y value = 0...

    Sketching graphs

    Just wondering if I could get a hand with sketching a graph where you aren't given the function. These are the details that are given -: f(0)=-1 f'(0)=0. f'(2)=0 f'(x) <0 for x <2. f'(x) >0 for 0<x<2. f'(x) <0 for x>2. Any help with finding critical points would be appreciated...
