3-28.

Write slope functions for the following functions:

Use the Power Rule. If

, then.

(Careful!)Remember that

is just a number, not a variable! Since

, what is the slope function of? Use that to find the slope function of.

is a horizontal shift of, whose slope function is easy to find with the Power Rule (see hint in part (a)). As for, THINK! Since slopes will shift with the function...will equal a shifted version of.

See hint in part (a).
