# Quadratic Functions, Maxima, Minima, Even Function

Not what you're looking for?

1. Given f(x)=16-x squared,and g(x)=4-x, find f/g (x).

2. Find the maximum or minimum value of the quadratic function
f(x)-x squared+10x-19. State whether this value is a maximum or minimum.

3. Evaluate the function at at specified value of the independent variable and simplify. F(x)=/x/-2; f(4)

4. Given f(x)=2/x-6 and g(x)=9/x-3,find (f-g)(x)

5. Evaluate the function at a specified value of the independent variable and simplify. F(x)=3x squared-squared root 2x; f(3)

6. Graph an even function.

7. A store owner wants to know the demand for family special as a function of price. Daily sales for four prices are listed.
Price,x \$9.50 \$10.25 \$10.75 \$11.75
Demand,y 33 26 27 28
Use a least squares regression line to estimate the demand for family special at \$12.75

1. GIVEN f(X)=16-X SQUARED,AND G(X)=4-X, FIND F/G (x).

2. FIND THE MAXIMUM OR MINIMUM VALUE OF THE QUADRATIC FUNCTION
F(X)-X SQUARED+10X-19. STATE WHETHER THIS VALUE IS A MAX.. OR MINI..

achieves maximum 6 at x=5. Why? Since

3. EVALUATETHE FUNCTIONAT AT SPECIFIED VALUE OF THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLE AND SIMPLIFY. F(X)=/X/-2; F(4)

So,
F(4)=4-2=2

4. GIVEN F(X)=2/X-6 AND ...

• "Your solution, looks excellent. I recognize things from previous chapters. I have seen the standard deviation formula you used to get 5.154. I do understand the Central Limit Theorem needs the sample size (n) to be greater than 30, we have 100. I do understand the sample mean(s) of the population will follow a normal distribution, and that CLT states the sample mean of population is the population (mean), we have 143.74. But when and WHY do we use the standard deviation formula where you got 5.154. WHEN & Why use standard deviation of the sample mean. I don't understand, why don't we simply use the "100" I understand that standard deviation is the square root of variance. I do understand that the variance is the square of the differences of each sample data value minus the mean. But somehow, why not use 100, why use standard deviation of sample mean? Please help explain."
