7.2 abs value function

  1. 1. Math 20-1 Chapter 7 Absolute Value and Reciprocal Functions Teacher Notes7.2 Absolute Value Function
  2. 2. 7.2 Graph an Absolute Value FunctionAbsolute value is defined as the distance fromzero in the number line. Absolute value of -6 is6, and absolute value of 6 is 6, Both are 6 unitsfrom zero in the number line.Piecewise Definition x if x 0 if 6 then 6 x x if x 0 if –6 then – 6 7.2.1
  3. 3. Express the distance between the two points, -6 and 6, usingabsolute value in two ways. 6 6 6 6
  4. 4. Graph an Absolute Value Function y = | 2x – 4| continuous Method 1: Sketch Using a Table of Values x y = | 2x – 4| y = | 2x – 4| –2 |2(-2) - 4| 8 2x 4 2x 4 0 |2(0) – 4| 4 2 |2(2) - 4| 0 4 |2(4) – 4| 4 6 |2(6) – 4| 8 Domain :{x | x R} The x-intercept occurs at the point (2, 0) Range :{y | y 0, y R} The y-intercept occurs at the point (0, 4)The x-intercept of the linear function is the x-intercept of thecorresponding absolute value function. This point may be called aninvariant point. 7.2.2
  5. 5. Graph an Absolute Value Function y = | 2x – 4| Method 2: Using the Graph of the Linear Function y = 2x - 4 1. Graph y = 2x - 4 Slope = 2 Y-intercept = -4 x-intercept = 2 2. Reflect in the x-axis the part of the graph of y = 2x – 4 that is below the x-axis. 3. Final graph y = |2x – 4| 7.2.3
  6. 6. Express as a piecewise function. y = |2x – 4|Recall the basic definition of absolute value. The expression in the abs is a line x if x 0 with a slope of +1 and x-intercept of 0. x –x if x 0function pieces −(x) x 0 domain x > 0domain x < 0has negative y-values,It must be reflected in the x-axis,multiply by -1 Note that 0 is the invariant point and can be determined by making the expression contained within the absolute value symbols equal to 0. 7.2.4

Express as a piecewise function. y = |2x – 4|Invariant point: =0 expression expressionx- intercept 2x – 4 = 0 Slope positive x=2 function pieces |2x - 4| −(2x - 4) (2x - 4) 2x - 4 – 2 + expression Domain x < 2 Domain x > 2 As a piecewise function y = |2x – 4| would be 2x 4 if x 2 2x 4 (2x 4) if x 2 7.2.5
  8. 8. Be CarefulGraph the absolute value function y = |-2x + 3| and expressit as a piecewise function Slope negative x-intercept 2x 3 0 3 x 2 + (-2x+3) – (-2x+3)Domain :{x | x R} 3 + -Range :{y | y 0, y R} Domain x < 3/2 2 x > 3/2 3 2x 3 if x Piecewise function: 2 2x 3 3 ( 2 x 3) if x 2 7.2.6
  9. 9. True or False:The domain of the function y = x + 2 is always the same as thedomain of the function y = |x + 2|. True The range of the function y = x + 2 is always the same as the range of the function y = |x + 2|. False Suggested Questions: Page 375: 1a, 2, 3, 5a,b, 6a,c,e, 9a,b, 12, 16, 7.2.7
