Take note of their general shapes and positions in relation to the x-axis and y-axis.
These are some basic graphs that every algebra student should know.
1. y = mx + b (Linear Function)
2. y = x2 (parabola)
3. y = xn
4. y = absolute value of x
5. y = square root of x
6. y =
7. y =
8. y = logb(x), where b > 1
9. y = ax
1. f(x) = x
2. f(x) = x2
3. f(x) = x3
4. f(x) = square root of x
5. f(x) = cube root of x
6. f(x) = absolute value of x
