Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanx :) how abt this. so basically i need to write an absolute value equation for something that the vertex is at (2.5, 18.5) and has a slope of 1. how do i write that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The domain of a piecewise function is basically all the values for which the piecewise function is specified. So if a piecewise function is valued 1 between 0 and 1, and 2 between 1 and 2, then the domain is 0 to 2. If you post an example we can walk through it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do i give someone a medal. the equation is y=x+2.5+18.5 I want it to only go up to 20 on the y axis and in bwtn 4 and 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Click `Good Answer' to the right of their name in the replies :) Ok, so if it only exists between 4 and 1, then that's the domain of the function :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The domain of the function is every x value for which you want your function to exist (or, more precisely, for which your function *does* exist).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i just write \[4\le x \le 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanx a million!!!!!!! sorry to bother everyone again but... is this the right equation? if i want an upside down abs value thing, with a slope of 3/2 the vertex is (2,20) i would write it y=3/2x+2+20 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't have time right this second to draw it out and check it :/ But! Try posting it as a separate question on the left; hopefully amistre or someone else will be able to spotcheck it faster than I can.
