Problem 2 Medium Difficulty

Classify each function as a power function, root function, polynomial (state its degree), rational function, algebraic function, trigonometric function, exponential function, or logarithmic function.

(a) $ y = \pi^x $
(b) $ y = x^\pi $
(c) $ y = x^2 (2 - x^3) $
(d) $ y = \tan t - \cos t $
(e) $ y = \frac{s}{1 + s} $
(f) $ y = \frac{\sqrt {x^3 - 1}}{1 + \sqrt[3]{x}} $


a. Exponential function
b. Power function.
c. Polynomial function
d. Trigonometric function
e. Rational function.
f. Algebraic function

For the problem given to us here, we want to classify each function as a power function route function polynomial and states degree. So in this case we see that the first one is going to be Y equals pi the X. So part of the X is an exponential function. Um That's exponential but then acts to the pie as a power function. And then if we have X squared times two minus X cubed, that's a polynomial function. Tangent, T is co sign key. That's going to be a trigger geometric function. E is S over one plus S rational function difficult. And then lastly we have root X cubed minus 1/1 plus cube root of X. And that's going to be an algebraic function. Those are final answers.
