    im just not sure what to do. Thats why i just need an example of f+g so i can see it. It's like you add the first line of each right?

    Try graphing it...Do you know how? I am not very good at explaining mathmatics without graph paper and not in person but you know who is excellent at it? @satellite73 @amistre64 @hartnn @Callisto ! There is a reason they are mods here!

    Now, try not to have to fall back on the mods too much because they are very busy. Be patient, they will help when they get a chance.

    f(x) = 0 if x <0 0 if x is greater than or equal to 0 What does this function imply?

    for f+g i got -x if x<0 and x if x is greater than or = to 0

    Right. f has no effect when doing the addition as its value is always 0. So, f+g just depends on g.

    it is really \(f(x)=0\) in both cases? or is there a typo there?
