1.3-2 Sketch the graph of y = −(x − 2) + 1 without using a graphing calculator.

Solution:
Starting with the graph of y = x 2 in black,
we get the graph shifted 2 units to the right in blue: y = (x − 2)2 ,
that graph reﬂected about the x-axis in green: y = −(x − 2)2 ,
and ﬁnally that graph shifted up 1 unit in red: y = −(x − 2)2 + 1.

1.3-44 When log y is graphed as a function of x on log-linear paper, a straight line results. Graph straight lines,
each given by two points, on a log-linear plot, and determine the functional relationship.
sk
(x2 , y2 ) = (2, 8)
Since the graph is a straight line on log-linear graph paper, we have Y=mx+b for constants
m and b which we must ﬁnd.
At (x1 , y1 ) = (−1, 4) we have log 4 = m(−1) + b, and
at (x2 , y2 ) = (2, 8) we have log 8 = m(2) + b, so on subtracting the ﬁrst equation from the second, we get
log 84
log 8 − log 4
