## Part a. Step 1. Given.

The given expression is $f\left(x\right)={\mathrm{log}}_{2}x$.

## Part a. Step 2. To determine.

We have to find a graph for the given function.

## Part a. Step 3. Calculation.

We make a table for $f\left(x\right)={\mathrm{log}}_{2}x$:

 x 1 2 4 $f\left(x\right)$ 0 1 2

So, the graph is: This graph matches with graph III.

So, the graph of (a) is III.

## Part b. Step 1. Given.

The given expression is $f\left(x\right)={\mathrm{log}}_{2}\left(-x\right)$.

## Part b. Step 2. To determine.

We have to find a graph for the given function.

## Part b. Step 3. Calculation.

We make a table for $f\left(x\right)={\mathrm{log}}_{2}\left(-x\right)$:

 x $-1$ $-2$ $-4$ $f\left(x\right)$ 0 1 2

So, the graph is: This graph matches with graph II.

So, the graph of (b) is II.

## Part c. Step 1. Given.

The given expression is $f\left(x\right)=-{\mathrm{log}}_{2}x$.

## Part c. Step 2. To determine.

We have to find a graph for the given function.

## Part c. Step 3. Calculation.

We make a table for $f\left(x\right)=-{\mathrm{log}}_{2}x$:

 x 1 2 4 $f\left(x\right)$ 0 $-1$ $-2$

So, the graph is: This graph matches with graph I.

So, the graph of (c) is I.

## Part d. Step 1. Given.

The given expression is $f\left(x\right)=-{\mathrm{log}}_{2}\left(-x\right)$.

## Part d. Step 2. To determine.

We have to find a graph for the given function.

## Part d. Step 3. Calculation.

We make a table for :

 x $-1$ $-2$ $-4$ $f\left(x\right)$ 0 $-1$ $-2$

So, the graph is: This graph matches with graph IV.

So, the graph of (d) is IV. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
