"What is the End Behavior and Average Rate of Change for each function?"

1. f(x) = x²

2. f(x) = |x|

3. f(x) = √x

4. f(x) = log x

5. f(x) = 2^x

6. f(x) = 1/x

I graphed each one into Desmos but I don't know how to find the end behavior or the rate of change. Please help. I'm very confused. Thanks.

"What is the End Behavior and Average Rate of Change for each function?"

I wouldn't expect you to know the average rate of change unless you have had Calculus

Thus....unless.....you will just have to take my word for this part of the answer

1. f(x) = x²

End behavior = up at both ends.....average rate of change = 2x

2. f(x) = |x|

End behavior = up at both ends ......average rate of change = x / √x^2

3. f(x) = √x

End behavior....on the left end, x =0 and y = 0 at the right end, "up" .....avg rate of change = 1 / [2√x ]

4. f(x) = log x

End behavior .....tends toward neg infinitiy as x approaches 0 from the right.....up on the right

Avg rate of change = 1 / x

5. f(x) = 2^x

End behavior.......tends toward y = 0 on the left side .....positive infinity on the right

Avg rate of changle = Ln (2)*2^x

6. f(x) = 1/x

End behavior........tends toward y = 0 on the left and tends toward neg inf as x approaches 0 from the left

Not defined at x = 0

Tends toward positive infinity as x approaches 0 from the right.....and then toward y = 0 on the right

Avg rate of change = log x
