## Graphs of Power Functions

Sketch the graphs of the functions described by $\displaystyle f(x)=x^2$ and $\displaystyle g(x)=x^4$ on the same axes, being careful to label any points of intersection. Also, find and label $\displaystyle\left(\frac{1}{2}, f(\frac{1}{2})\right)$ and $\displaystyle\left(\frac{1}{2}, g(\frac{1}{2})\right)$.

Sketch the graphs of the functions described by $f(x)=x^3$ and $g(x)=x^5$ on the same axes, being careful to label any points of intersection. Also, find and label $\displaystyle\left(\frac{1}{2}, f(\frac{1}{2})\right)$ and $\displaystyle\left(\frac{1}{2}, g(\frac{1}{2})\right)$.

about 6 yearsNice graphs. In the graph of g(x) = x^4, however, the ordered pair should read (0.5, 0.0625).

about 6 yearsWow, good eye! I've updated the graph. Thanks.
