Re: graph of the function

What's the question here? Do you want to draw the graph, find points where it crosses the axes, find any turning points or asymptotes it may have? I can't really help you too much if you don't give a question.

At the moment, I can just give you this hint that will probably help out a bit:
Consider what happens when instead of 1/2, you write 2[sup]-1[/sup]. Then use the laws of indices to make that a simple expression as a power of 2.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
