the answer is C) x ≥ -3, x ≠ 2

2. Identify intervals on which the function is increasing, decreasing, or constant.

g(x) = 2 - (x - 7)2

using a graphical tool

see the attachment

the answer is C) Increasing: x < 7; decreasing: x > 7

3. Perform the requested operation or operations.

f(x) = 4x + 7, g(x) = 3x2

Find (f + g)(x).

(f + g)(x) = f(x) + g(x)

(f + g)(x) = 4x + 7 + 3x^2

(f + g)(x) = 3x^2 + 4x + 7

The answer is C) 4x + 7 + 3x2

4. Perform the requested operation or operations.

f(x) = x minus five divided by eight. ; g(x) = 8x + 5, find g(f(x)).

f(x)=(x-5)/8 g(x)=8x+5

g(f(x))=8((x-5)/8)+5=x-5+5=x

the answer is B) g(f(x)) = x

5. Find f(x) and g(x) so that the function can be described as y = f(g(x)).y = nine divided by square root of quantity five x plus five.

y=f(g(x))=9/((5x+5) ^1/2)

let do

g(x)=5x+5...........so

f(x)= 9/( x^1/2)

the answer is A) f(x) = nine divided by square root of x. , g(x) = 5x + 5

6. A satellite camera takes a rectangular-shaped picture. The smallest region that can be photographed is a 4-km by 4-km rectangle. As the camera zooms out, the length l and width w of the rectangle increase at a rate of 3 km/sec. How long does it take for the area A to be at least 4 times its original size?

Original size- >4km*4km=16 km2

4 times its original size---------------4*(16km2)-----64 Km2----------- > 8 km by 8 Km

Therefore

3km----------------------------- 1 sec

(8km-4km)---------------------x

X=4/3=1.33 sec

The answer is D) 1.33 sec

7. Find the inverse of the function.

f(x) = the cube root of quantity x divided by seven. - 9

to solve, replace f(x) with y , switch x and y, solve for y and replace y with f⁻¹(x)

f(x)=((x/7)-9) ^(1/3)

replace f(x) with y

y=((x/7)-9) ^(1/3)

switch x and y

x=((y/7)-9) ^(1/3)

solve for y

x^3=((y/7)-9)

x^3+9=y/7

y=7(x^3+9)

the answer is C) f-1(x) = 7(x3 + 9)

8. Describe how the graph of y= x2 can be transformed to the graph of the given equation.y = (x - 14)2 – 9

9. Describe how to transform the graph of f into the graph of g. f(x) = alt='square root of quantity x minus nine.' and g(x) = alt='square root of quantity x plus five. '

f(x)=(x-9) ^1/2 g(x)=(x+5) ^1/2

using a graphical tool see the attachment

the answer is C) Shift the graph of f left 14 units
