What is a Radical Function? - Definition, Equations & Graphs

1. What is a Radical Function? - Definition, Equations & Graphs

Radical functions operate very differently than regular functions. This lesson covers the definitions, equations, and graphs that you will need to know to be successful with radical functions.

Transformations of Radical Equations

2. Transformations of Radical Equations

This lesson will provide examples of radical graphs and equations. This lesson provides detailed explanations for how to determine the types of transformations that have occurred from a parent graph by looking at the equation only.

Solving Radical Equations: Steps and Examples

3. Solving Radical Equations: Steps and Examples

Solving radical equations is not any more difficult than solving other algebraic equations. This lesson will show you how to solve equations containing a square root and give some real-world examples.

Solving Radical Equations with Two Radical Terms

4. Solving Radical Equations with Two Radical Terms

Solving equations with two radical terms takes some patience and care, but it really is not difficult. This lesson will show you the steps to solve these more complicated equations plus give you some examples to follow.

Inverse Functions

5. Inverse Functions

Inverse functions are two functions that do exactly opposite things. Check out this lesson to learn about how to write inverse functions, find inverse functions, and predict whether or not they exist.

Understanding and Graphing the Inverse Function

6. Understanding and Graphing the Inverse Function

If you use a function to map a to b, is there a way to go back from b to a again? Learn how to find and graph inverse functions so that you can turn a into b and back into a.
