b) Choose one pair of functions y = f(x) and y = f(x) from
part a. If the domains are different and the ranges are different,
explain why.
Sample response: For part a, i, the domains are different because the
radical function only exists for those values of x where y » 0; while the
quadratic function exists for all real values of x. The ranges are different
because the value of y for the radical function can only be 0 or a
positive number; while the range of the quadratic function is all real
numbers less than or equal to 4, which includes all negative real
numbers.

## 9. Solve each radical equation by graphing. Give the solution to the

nearest tenth where necessary.

Sample response: For y ⴝ f(x) to be undefined, the value of f(x) must 2

c) For every cubic function y = g(x), the function y = g(x) exists.
Explain why.
Since the graph of every cubic function either begins in Quadrant 2 and
there is always part of the graph above the x-axis; that is, the function
has positive values, so its square root exists.

13. When a satellite is h kilometres above Earth, the time for one
complete orbit, t√
minutes, can be calculated using this formula:
t = 1.66 * 10 (h + 6370)3
-4

## A communications satellite is to be positioned so that it is always

above the same point on Earth’s surface. It takes 24 h for this satellite
to complete one orbit. What should the height of the satellite be?
Substitute t ⴝ (24)(60), or 1440.

1440 ⴝ 1.66 ⴛ 10ⴚ4 (h ⴙ 6370)3
Write the equation with all the terms on one side.

1440 ⴚ 1.66 ⴛ 10ⴚ4 (h ⴙ 6370)3 ⴝ 0
Write a related function.

f(h) ⴝ 1440 ⴚ 1.66 ⴛ 10ⴚ4 (h ⴙ 6370)3
Graph the function, then determine the approximate zero, which is
35 848.513.
So, to the nearest kilometre, the satellite should be 35 849 km high.

using graphing√technology. What are the invariant points on the
graph of y = 3 f(x)?

the graph of y ⴝ f(x) lies above

## the graph of y ⴝ f(x) between A and C, 4

and between B and D. Since the
cube root of a√number between 0 and ⴚ1 is less than the number, the
graph of y ⴝ 3 f(x) lies below the graph of y ⴝ f(x) between A and E,
and between B and F.
