Relate the domain of a function to its graph and, where applicable, to the quantitative relationship it describes. For example, if the function h(n) gives the number of person-hours it takes to assemble engines in a factory, then the positive integers would be an appropriate domain for the function.

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

  • Question:

    The points on the graph show the population data, in millions, of the state of Florida for each decade from 1900 to 2000. The data are modeled by the function P(x)=begin mathsize 12px style 506975 left parenthesis 1.43 right parenthesis to the power of x end style, shown on the graph.

    What is the domain of the graph of P(x) that is shown?
