    yes that is the correct graph,i need some good explanation..

    apparently it is \((-\infty, 0]\cup [2,\infty)\)

    it will take a long time to do you have to solve over different intervals

    tell me over one interval

    if x<0 then why is the x-1 thing reversed,first doubt?

    i am sorry my answer was wrong it is \((-\infty, 0]\cup [4,\infty)\)

    taking positive and negative value of piecewise function and solving the square root part greater than equal to 0 you get the following : \[x \geq 0 \& x \geq 4\]

    you have to break it up in to cases if \(x>3\) then \(|x-1|=x-1,,|x-2|=x-2, |x-3|=x-3\)

  19. satellite73

    so if \(x>3\) you are solving \[x-1+x-2+x-3-6\geq 0\] in which case you get \[3x-12\geq 0\] and so \(x\geq 4\)

    So domain of the function is \[x \geq 4\]

    If i have |x-1| then for x<0 it becomes x-1?why?

  22. satellite73

    if \(x<1\) then \(|x-1|=1-x\)

    i wrote that too but why :|

  24. satellite73
    • one year ago
    Best Response

    because if \(x<1\) then \(x-1<0\) and so \(|x-1|=-(x-1)=1-x\)

  25. DLS

    but modulus function makes it positive

  26. satellite73

    yes, and if \(x-1\) is negative, then \(1-x\) is positive

    why is the sign getting reversed? i thought | | will make it +ve no matter if x>0 or x<0

    lets try it with numbers suppose \(x=-2\) then \(|-2-1|=|-3|=3=1-(-2)\)

    seems legit but very non intuitive for me first time :P

    the definition is this \[ |x| = \left\{\begin{array}{rcc} -x & \text{if} & x <0 \\ x & \text{if} & x\geq 0 \end{array} \right. \]

    for kind of removing the mod right?

  32. satellite73
    • one year ago

    and so for example \[ |x-1| = \left\{\begin{array}{rcc} 1-x & \text{if} & x <1 \\ x-1& \text{if} & x \geq 1 \end{array} \right. \]

    yes, it seems like absolute value should be easy right? just "make it positive" but in fact it is a very annoying piecewise function and hard to work with because of that fact

    hmm..okay..clear enough..thanks for your time :") why do i have 3 medals anyway :P

    and the last thing,how do i get the points on the graph? i am supposed to find dy/dx at all these intervals right? If they turn out to be +ve then increasing slope..and vice versa..but what about the points?
