34 Function Problems : Graphing, Translation, Reflection, Domains, Limits, Derivatives and Tangents

For the following graph the given functions on a computer screen, how are these graphs related?

1) Y=2^x, y=e^x, y=5^x, y=20^x

2) Y=3^x, y=10^x, y=(1/3)^x, y=(1/10)^x


Make a sketch of the function.

7) y=4^x-3
8) y=-2x^-x
9) y=3-e^x

13) Starting with the graph of y=e^x, write the equation of the graph that results from.
a) shifting two units downwards.
b) shifting two units to the right.
c) reflecting about the x axis.
d) reflecting about the y axis.
e) ) reflecting about the x axis and then about the y axis.

Find the domain of the functions:

a) f(x)=1/(1+e^x)
b) f(x) = 1/(1-e^x)

d) g(t) = SQRT(1-2^t)


19) Suppose the graphs of f(x)=x^2 and g(x)=2^x are drawn on a coordinate grid where the unit of measurement is 1 inch. Show that at a distance of 2 feet to the right of the origin, the height of the graph of f is 48ft but the height of the graph of g is about 265mi.
20) Compare the functions f(x)=x^10 and g(x)=e^x by graphing both f and g in several viewing rectangles. When does the graph of g finally surpass the graph of f?
