Use the graph of y x shown above and the labeled points on the graph as a reference. Describehow a affects the graph.In the activity you may have discovered that the graph of y a x starts at the origin3and passes through the point (1, a). Similarly, the graph of y a x passes throughthe origin and the points (º1, ºa) and (1, a). The following describes how to graphmore general radical functions.GRAPHS OF RADICAL FUNCTIONS3To graph y a x º h k or y a x º h k, follow these steps.3STEP 1Sketch the graph of y a x or y a x .STEP 2Shift the graph h units horizontally and k units vertically.7.5 Graphing Square Root and Cube Root Functions431

From the graph of y º3 x º 2 1 in Example 2, you can see that thedomain of the function is x 2 and the range of the function is y 1.3b. From the graph of y 3 x 2 º 1 in Example 3, you can see that the domainand range of the function are both all real numbers.432Chapter 7 Powers, Roots, and Radicalsx

Most amusement ridedesigners have a degree inmechanical engineering.NEER TCAREER LINKwww.mcdougallittell.comAMUSEMENT PARKS At an amusement parka ride called the rotor is a cylindrical room thatspins around. The riders stand against the circularwall. When the rotor reaches the necessary speed,the floor drops out and the centrifugal force keepsthe riders pinned to the wall.The model that gives the speed s (in meters persecond) necessary to keep a person pinned to thewall iss 4.95 r where r is the radius (in meters) of the rotor. Use a graphing calculator to graph themodel. Then use the graph to estimate the radius of a rotor that spins at a speed of8 meters per second.SOLUTIONGraph y 4.95 x and y 8.
