9. Answer each of the following questions concerning the graph to the lower -right.
(a) Determine the range and domain of the function f from its graph, given to the right below. Use interval notation.
Solution:

Domain = [−3, 3]

Range = [ 0, 2]

(b) State the intervals of increase and decrease.

Interval of increase = [−3, 0]

Interval of decrease = [ 1, 3] 10. The graph of the function y = x^2 is shifted horizontally 2 units to the left, and shifted 4 units vertically upwards.
Write the equation of the resulting function: 11. Sketch each of the following graphs using transformation methods . Solution: (b) g(x) = |x + 1|. Solution: 12. Solve the absolute inequality : |1 − 2x| ≥ 6

Solution: We have, again,

 |1 − 2x| ≥ 6 1 − 2x ≥ 6 or 1 − 2x ≤ −6 −2x ≥ 5 or −2x ≤ −7 x ≤ −5/2 or x ≥ 7/2

The solution set is (−∞,−5/2) ∪ [7/2,∞)

13. Answer each of the following concerning piecewise-defined function (a) (2 pts) Calculate each of the following :

f (4)= −3

f (−3) = 9

(b) (4 pts) Graph the function on the axis to the right. Be
sure to indicate the value of the function at x = 0 on
the graph. 14. Let f (x) = 2x^2 − x and g(x) = 3x + 1, perform the following compositions. 15. Consider the function Find functions f and g such that  16. Solve the following system using the elimination method . Leave your answer as a solution set. Solution Set ={(1/2, 1/3)}

Solution: We use the elimination method:

 2x + 3y = 2 (1) 4x − 3y = 1 (2) 4x + 6y = 4 (3) multiply (1) by 2 4x − 3y = 1 (2) copy of equation (2) 9y = 3 (4) subtract (2) from (3) y = 1/3 (5) solve 2x + 3(1/3) = 2 substitute (5) into (1) x = 1/2 solve! The solution set is { (1/2, 1/3) }
