**MATH 107**

*• Show work/explanation where indicated. Answers without any work may earn little, if any, credit. You may type or write your work in your copy of the exam, or if you prefer, create a document containing your work. Scanned work is also acceptable. In your document, be sure to include your name and the assertion of independence of work.*

1) Graphs for two functions *f(x)* and *g(x)* are given below. Formulas for them are not given. Determine the following. (10pts)
