Right now I will be explaining how the square root function is exceptionally similar to the standard function.
The only difference between both equations is that the square root function has a square root surrounding the “x-h” in the function, but the standard function, instead of having a square root, the “x-h” are squared.
Square root function–> f(x)=a sqrt(x-h)+k
Standard function –> f(x)=a (x-h)^2+k
The reason why one is squared and the other one is square rooted is because, when drawing the graph of a the standard function, it demonstrates a parabola, but when drawing the graph of and square root function, it demonstrated the half of a parabola.
Is that clear to you guys? 🙂
