## Algebra and Trigonometry 10th Edition

a) $f(x)=\sqrt x$ b) Vertical shrink c) See graph d) $g(x)=\dfrac{1}{2}f(x)$
We are given the function: $g(x)=\dfrac{1}{2}\sqrt x$ a) The parent function is: $f(x)=\sqrt x$ b) Vertically shrink $f(x)$ by a factor of $\dfrac{1}{2}$ to get $g(x)=\dfrac{1}{2}\sqrt x$. c) Graph the transformation: d) Use function notation to write $g$ in terms of $f$: $g(x)=\dfrac{1}{2}f(x)$
