Grab your graphing calculator and try the following questions:

1.

The graph at the right shows the line y = x.  If the line y = 5x were graphed on the same grid, would the new graph be more steep or less steep than the current graph?

Choose:

more steep
less steep

                                                                     

 

 

2.

The graph at the right shows the parabola
y = x2 .  If the parabola y = 0.4x2 were graphed on the same grid, would the new parabola be wider or narrower than the current parabola? 

Choose:

wider
narrower
