Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Split it up into intervals where the function can be represented with a single formula. e.g for x in [0,1[, f(x) = 3 for x in [1,5[ , f(x) = (3/2)*(x1) + 3 and so on. You can calculate the derivatives for these pieces easily. Remember that at points like 1,5 or 7 the derivative doesn't exist.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh okay thanks! And I'm guessing we do a similar thing if we're working backward? So, finding the integral graph instead?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think I would just use the area definition of the integral, especially for a simple function like this. BTW, we could have solved this by remembering that the derivative of a linear function is its slope and just 'reading off' the value from the graph.
