Tranformations of Radical Equations
The four sliders change the value of different elements of the radical equation. i = index of the equation coeff = coefficient of the x term h = constant grouped with x term k = constant not grouped with x term Adjust these values to change the equation and the graph.
1. What happens when h is negative? When it is positive? 2. What happens when k is negative? When it is positive? 3. What happens when coeff is negative? When it is positive?When it is large? 4. What pattern do you see in changing the index? 5. Change i to an even number. Can you ever make this graph point to the left? 6. Write a short paragraph describing how each part of this equation influences the graph.
