Often a question will not include the whole graph, but just part of it. Select the elements that best identify the graph shown.

• 1.

Which of the options below can provide a possible equation for this graph. (With partial graphs, there may be more than one!)

• A.

Linear

• B.

Hyperbola

• C.

Parabola

• D.

Truncus

• E.

Cubic

A. Linear
Explanation
A linear equation is a possible equation for this graph because it shows a straight line, indicating a constant rate of change. A linear equation can be written in the form y = mx + b, where m represents the slope of the line and b represents the y-intercept. This equation would accurately represent the graph if the points on the graph lie in a straight line and do not curve or deviate from a constant rate of change.

A. Linear
Explanation
A linear equation can provide a possible equation for this graph because a linear equation represents a straight line on a graph. The graph in question may have a constant rate of change and does not show any curvature or turning points, which aligns with the characteristics of a linear equation.

A. Linear
Explanation
A linear equation can provide a possible equation for this graph because a linear equation represents a straight line on a graph. If the given graph is a straight line, it can be described by a linear equation in the form y = mx + b, where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept.

A. Linear
Explanation
A linear equation represents a straight line on a graph. It has the form y = mx + b, where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept. Since the graph is a straight line, it can be represented by a linear equation.

• A.

Linear

• B.

Hyperbola

Parabola

• D.

Truncus

B. Hyperbola
Explanation
The given answer "Hyperbola" is correct because a hyperbola is a type of curve that can be represented by an equation in the form of (x-h)^2/a^2 - (y-k)^2/b^2 = 1. This equation can result in a graph that has two distinct branches that are symmetric about the x-axis and the y-axis. The graph of a hyperbola can have a curved shape and does not follow a linear, parabolic, or cubic pattern. Therefore, "Hyperbola" is the most suitable option for providing a possible equation for this graph.

Which of the options below can provide a possible equation for this graph. (With partial graphs, there may be more than one!)

• A.

Hyperbola

Cubic

B. Hyperbola
Explanation
A hyperbola is a type of curve that resembles two infinite branches that are symmetric to each other. It is defined by the equation (x-h)^2/a^2 - (y-k)^2/b^2 = 1 or (y-k)^2/b^2 - (x-h)^2/a^2 = 1. Since a hyperbola is not a straight line (linear), a U-shaped curve (parabola), a truncated cone (truncus), or a curve that has a degree of 3 (cubic), it is the only option that can provide a possible equation for the given graph.

B. Hyperbola
Explanation
A hyperbola is a type of conic section that has two separate branches that are symmetric about the x-axis and the y-axis. It is characterized by its equation in the form of (x-h)^2/a^2 - (y-k)^2/b^2 = 1, where (h,k) represents the center of the hyperbola and a and b are the distances from the center to the vertices. Since a hyperbola can have multiple possible equations depending on the position and orientation of its branches, it can provide a possible equation for the given graph.

B. Hyperbola
Explanation
A hyperbola is a type of curve that is symmetric about its center point and has two branches that open up and down or left and right. It is characterized by its equation in the form (x-h)^2/a^2 - (y-k)^2/b^2 = 1 or (y-k)^2/a^2 - (x-h)^2/b^2 = 1, where (h,k) is the center of the hyperbola and a and b are the distances between the center and the vertices. Since the graph in question is a hyperbola, it is possible that one of the options provided could represent its equation.

Cubic

C. Parabola
E. Cubic
Explanation
The graph can be a parabola because it has a U-shaped curve, which is a characteristic of a parabolic function. Additionally, it can also be a cubic function because it has two curves with opposite concavities, which is a characteristic of a cubic function. Both options can provide a possible equation for this graph.

Explanation
The graph can be a parabola because it has a U shape and opens upwards. A parabola is a curve that is symmetric and can be described by a quadratic equation. Additionally, the graph can also be a cubic because it has two turning points and can be described by a cubic equation.

Explanation
The graph can be a possible equation for both a parabola and a cubic function. A parabola is a U-shaped curve, while a cubic function is a curve that can have multiple shapes, such as a U-shape or an S-shape. Therefore, either a parabola or a cubic function can provide a possible equation for the given graph.
