Guidelines for graphing functions

5
Both axes must be labeled according to the
names of the variables given by the problem:
independent variable (often “x”) on the
horizontal axis
dependent variable (often “y”) on the
vertical axis
if the graph is the graph of a named function,
there is no dependent variable; instead, the
name of the function is used; e.g. "f(x)", as
shown above

6
• Function Notation
The symbol f(x)
Exercises :
Using function notation for f(x) = x2 – 2x + 7,
find :
a. f(a)
b. f(a + h)
c. f(a + h) - f(a)
h

• Applications

- Cost function:
C = (fixed costs) + (variable costs)
C = a + bx

- Price-demand:
p = m - nx

## x is the number of items that can be sold for a

price of \$p per item

8
- Revenue:
Revenue will be (#items sold) x (price per item)
R = xp where x = #items sold
p = price per item

- Profit:
Profit is, of course, Revenue – Cost:
P=R–C

• Exercises
A manufacturer of a popular automatic
camera wholesales the camera to retail
outlets throughout the United States. Using
statistical methods, the financial department
in the company produced the price-demand
data in Table 1, where p is the wholesale
price per camera at which x million cameras
are sold. Notice that as the price goes down,
the number sold goes up

• Applications

- Cost function:
C = (fixed costs) + (variable costs)
C = a + bx

E. g. C = 3000 + 200x
This is an example of a function defined by an
equation, with
 independent variable x
 dependent variable C

15
Alternatively, the Cost function could have
been given as

## This is a function defined using functional

notation. Here, the “C” is the name of a
function, not the name of a variable, as in the
prior example.

16
The independent variable is still x, but there is
no dependent variable, so you can label the
vertical axis with “C(x)”.

## Using this notations, we can write:

C(1000) = 3000 + 200(1000) = 203000
That is, the cost of producing 1000 units is
\$203,000.00
The 1000 is called an input, with
corresponding output 203000.
17
• Cost:
C = a + bx , the cost of producing x items
The “parameters” (numbers that are specific to
a particular business situation), are a and b.

## Example: C = 100 + 0.50x

fixed cost = \$100 cost per item produced = \$ 0.50

• Price-demand:
p = m - nx x is the number of items that
can be sold for a price of \$p per item
18
Example: p(x)= 1 - 0.0001x:

19
• Revenue:
Revenue will be (#items sold) x (price per
item)
R = xp where x = #items sold
p = price per item

## For our example: R(x) = xp = x(1 - 0.0001x)

Here’s the Revenue graph for our example:

21
Note: lowered prices  greater demand 
increased sales
BUT the lower prices eventually overtake
increased sales, ultimately decreasing revenues.

• Profit:
Profit is, of course, Revenue – Cost: P = R – C
For our example:
C(x) = 100 + 0.50x
R(x) = x(1 - 0.0001x)
P(x) = x(1 - 0.0001x) – (100 + 0.50x) = -
0.0001x2 + 0.50x - 100
Here, Profit is written in terms of Demand (x).22

Linear Functions and Straight Lines

Linear functions
are of the form f(x) = mx + b
e.g f(x) = -3x + 4 (m = -3, b = 4)
called linear because they graph as straight
lines
sometimes written y = mx + b (slope-
intercept form)

29
Graphing a linear function using intercept
method
Example: or f(x) = 2x + 4
(1) convert to equation form: y = 2x + 4
(2) Find intercepts: set x = 0, solve to get
y-intercept = 4
set y = 0, solve to get
x-intercept = -2
(3) Plot the intercepts and draw the line:

31
Graphing a function having restricted
domain
Most real-world functions will have restricted
domains, e.g.
A = 6t + 10, 0 ≤ t ≤ 100
The “0 ≤ t ≤ 100” is a domain restriction,
meaning that the function is valid only for
values of t between 0 and 100, inclusive.

32
To graph it, calculate the points at the
extreme left and right:
if t = 0, A = 10  point (0, 10)
if t = 100, A = 610  point (100, 610)
Graph the points and draw the line:

34
Slope of a line

35
Computing slope, given two points:

36
In general, given two points (x1, y1)
and (x2, y2), the slope of the line
passing through them is

y 2  y1
m = (slope formula)
x 2  x1

37
Kinds of slope

38
When the slope is zero, we have a constant
function.
When a function is written in slope-intercept
form
f(x) = mx + b or
y = mx + b
the coefficient m of x will be the slope
the constant term b will be the y-intercept
e.g. the graph of f(x) = - ¾ x + 12 has slope -
3/4, and y-intercept 12.

39
Interpretation of slope
The following graph represents the value of an
investment (in \$’s) over time (in years):
slope = rate = 100 \$/yr

40
As you can see, it is a linear function, and has
slope = 100.
By looking at the graph, you can see that the
investment grows by \$100/year,
so the interpretation of “slope = 100” for this
linear function is:
“The investment increases by \$100 per year
(\$100/year)”
Notice the form of this statement: “Y per X”
or “Y/X”
Y is the slope expressed in y-axis units
X is the x-axis unit
41
Point-slope form of a line
This form is used to find the equation of a
line when you know a point (x1, y1) on the
line, and its slope m:
y – y1 = m(x – x1) (point-slope
form)
Finding the equation of a line, given two
points
Example: points: (1, 3) (3, 6)

Graphs
Quadratic function: has a squared term, but
none of higher degree
standard form of the quadratic function:

•vertex =
  b   b 
 ,f  
 2a  2a  
vertex form of the quadratic function:
•f(x) = a(x - h)2 + k
•vertex = (h, k)
parabola: the graph of a quadratic function43
The anatomy of a parabola

The role of a:
if a > 0, parabola opens upward
if a < 0, parabola opens downward 44
Finding the vertex
Example: f(x) = (x + 1)2 - 3
It is already in vertex form f(x)= (x - h)2 + k
so vertex = (h, k) = (-1, -3)
Example: f(x) = x2 + 2x – 2

## x-coordinate of vertex = -b/2a = -2/2 = -1

y-coordinate of vertex =
f( -1 ) = (-1)2 + 2(-1) –2 = -3
so vertex = (-1, -3)
Note: this is not the way shown in the book
(i.e. by completing the square), but is far
45
superior to it
Sketching the graph of a quadratic function
Example: R(x) = x(2000 – 60x) 1 ≤ x ≤ 25
(1) write it in standard form:
R(x) = 2000x – 60x2
(2) find the vertex:
x-coordinate = -b/2a = -2000/-120
= 50/3 = 16.67
y-coordinate = 50/3(2000 – 60(50/3))
= 16667
(3) find the points at extreme left and right of
range :
R(1) = 1940  point on graph is (1, 1940)
R(25) = 12500  point on graph is (25,12500)

Maximum and minimum of a quadratic
function
Here’s your familiar parabola (graph of a

48
Maximum:
• refers to the largest value that f(x) can ever
have for this example, it is 4
• maximum is second coordinate of the vertex
point we say that "f attains its maximum of 4
for x = 1" f has a maximum value because it
opens down

49
The following parabola opens up, therefore
doesn't have a maximum, but rather a
minimum:

Minimum:
this parabola attains its minimum of -3 for
x=5 50
Finding maximum or minimum

Example:
When a cannon is fired at a certain angle,
the distance h (in meters) of the shell above
the ground t seconds after firing is given
by the formula
h(t) = -4.9t2 + 24t + 5
Find the maximum height attained by the shell.
51
Notes:
h(t) is a quadratic function (parabola)  has a
vertex!
for this parabola, a = - 4.9 and b = 24
a < 0  the parabola opens downward  has a
max value

## The answer: The shell reaches its maximum

height of 34.4 meters 2.45 seconds after the
cannon is fired.

Break-even analysis

Example:
R(x) = x(2000 – 60x) 1 ≤ x ≤ 25
C(x) = 5000 + 500x 1 ≤ x ≤ 25

A break-even point is a production level in
response to demand (x) for which
Revenue = Cost
Graphically, this means x-values where the
graphs intersect.
Algebraically, we solve the equation
Revenue = Cost
x(2000 – 60x) = 5000 + 500x
to get x = 4 or 21 as production levels where
we break even.
