Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is what I have, the functions are missing, the graph I drew above is supposed to be interpreted so the function can be filled in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok. are you sure the bottom one is 3≤x≤3? It looks like it should be 3 ≤ x ≤ maybe 4 or 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you take a picture of the problem or give me coordinates for the points? dw:1439343890005:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once you have the two end points for the bottom segment, we can write an equation in y = mx + b form, but we need the exact points to get it right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, for the first piece, f(x) = 3 when \(1\leq x\leq 1\), got this part? dw:1439345082272:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the second piece, it is a slant line. Can you find the equation of that line by finding the slope??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0YOu have only 2 given points (3,2) and (5,4). Pick one of them. YOu CANNOT pick other point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, the line is y = mx +b where m is the slope. And we know that m =1 hence y = x +b x both sides, what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just graph the two pieces as if no restriction existed. Later, go cross out the stuff where the Domain is not specified.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@tkhunny they didn't give the function. We have to find it. That is the problem \(f(x) =\begin{cases}if~~1\leq x\leq1\\if~~~3\leq x\leq 5\end{cases}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see. We're given the graph? @Kaelyn78 , you should know the twopoint form of a line  or its cleaner variant, the pointslope form. Heard of them?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Please stop saying "function" when the Domains overlap.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've heard of point slope form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given the two points, calculate the slope. Use one of the points and the slope and fill in the values from the pointslope form. You will be done in no time.
