Some Basic Algebraic Functions: Square root function

Definition

The graph of the function f(x) = √x makes half a parabola . The principal square root function f(x) = √x (usually just referred to as the "square root function") is a function that maps the set of non-negative real numbers onto itself. To explore how a square root function behaves, try to change the value on the sliders.
