Which graph represents the function?

 

f(x)= Sqrt x-1

 

Graphs:

 

Graph of a square root function. The horizontal axis ranges from negative 3 to 7 in increments of 1. The vertical axis ranges from negative 2 to 8 in increments of 1. The function begins at begin ordered pair 0 comma 1 end ordered pair and passes through begin ordered pair 1 comma 3 end ordered pair and begin ordered pair 4 comma 5 and ordered pair.

The second to last one. It has the correct x-intercept (1,0) and has the correct slope.

I think you mean

 

f(x)= Sqrt (x-1)  becasue none of them are   f(x)= Sqrt x-1

 

f(x)= Sqrt (x-1)

you know   Sqrt (4) = 2

and

f(x)= Sqrt (5-1)=sqrt(4)

 

so  lets think about  x=5 

f(5)= sqrt(5-1)  =   sqrt4  =  2

So (5,2) must be a point on the graph.

So which is the correct graph?

The last graph?

Does the last graph have the point (5,2) on it?
