Piece wise - defined form of function N(x) = 20 - |x-5| N(x) = ( ax + b x >= 5 cx + d x< 5 find a,b,c,d So far i've come up with 1x -5 >= 5 1x+5 < 5 But its not making sense and Im stuck. Any thoughts?

define the function in 2 pieces, split at the point of the vertex

by splitting the function at the vertex, we are piecing together the absolute value portion let (x-5) be positive 20 - (x-5) ------------------ let (x-5) be negative 20 - -(x-5) to define which side is which ... let x=0 to see which piece matches the original setup

20-x+5 20+x-5 when x=0; 20 - |-5| = 15; and since 0<5 this piece conforms to when x<5
