# Calculus, 8th Edition,stewart; page 33 problem 1

Classify each function as a power function, root function, polynomial (state its degree), rational function, algebraic function, trigonometric function, exponential function, or logarithmic function.

(a) f(x) = log2(x)      (b) g(x) = ∜x      (c) h(x) = 2x^3/(1 - x^2)      (d) u(t) = 1 - 1.1t + 2.54t^2

(e) v(t) = 5^t     (f) w(θ) = sin θ cos^2 θ
