is a cubic function injective for all real numbers?
An injective function is a type of mathematical function where each element in the domain maps to a unique element in the range. This means that no two elements in the domain will have the same output value in the range.
A cubic function is a type of polynomial function where the highest degree term is raised to the third power. This makes it different from linear, quadratic, and other types of functions that have different degrees for their highest degree term.
No, not all cubic functions are injective. An injective cubic function must have a one-to-one mapping between the domain and range. This means that each input value in the domain must have a unique output value in the range. If this condition is not met, the cubic function is not injective.
Yes, a cubic function can have multiple roots. A root is a value that makes the function equal to zero. Since a cubic function is a polynomial function, it can have up to three real roots. However, an injective cubic function can only have one root.
A cubic function can be graphed by plotting points on a coordinate plane and connecting them with a smooth curve. The shape of the curve will depend on the coefficients of the function and can be used to determine the behavior of the function.
