    step one: find the domain of each piece, step two: find the equation that describes the interval on each domain step three: combine

    |dw:1360554027098:dw| the domain for the first piece is 0≤x≤2 the equation for this interval is y=x the domain for the second piece is 2≤x the equation for the second piece is y=2

    combining \[y=\begin{cases}x&0≤x≤2\\2&2≤x\end{cases}\]

    for the first one i got \[f(x) = \left\{ 3 ; 0 \le x \le 3\right\}\]

    i mean y=-x+7 the slope is -1 and the y- intercept would be at y=7

    um, you could find the equation of the line using the Two-point formula, since you have at least two points

    the Two-point formula\[y-y_1=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}(x-x_1)\]

    do i get just any set of points?

    so you could use the points \((x_1,y_1)=(3,4)\) \((x_2,y_2)=(6,1)\) but you could choose different points on the line and you should get the same answer
