Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose you are gathering data the resembles a graph: y = x+6. but you find that at x=9 the value is not cinsistent... you would have to define another "equation" for that value. f(x) = x+6, for all values of x except for 9; and f(x) = 6 when x = 9....something like that
