Graphing piecewise functions 2014-03-29
Rayven pose la question :
Hi! I'm in eighth grade, taking ninth grade algebra 1. I'm confused as to how to graph piecewise functions. I know that you have already answered a question similar to this (I did my research first) but it didn't completely help me on my homework. I have to graph piecewise functions for the specified domains, and create a table for the absolute values. I know that two bars around a number means absolute value (two bars around -2 makes it +2) , but how do I graph and chart the absolute value for the following:

f(x)= |x+3 | for -5≤x≤3

And then graph and chart: (on a separate graph):

f(x)= {x if x≤0
{x+1 if x <0

thank you!

Kait pose la question :
We discussed how to graph piecewise functions today and I'm very lost!! I'm sitting here staring at this problem that says:
f(x){2x+1, if x <1
f(x){-x+4, if x is greater than or equal to 1.

Claudia pose la question :
hi! i was just looking at a question by someone else about piecewise functions, but i still don't get it.
my problem is
g(x){x+2 if x <-2}
g(x){2x - 1 if x> or = -2}

Kris pose la question :
First Problem:
Southeast Electric charges .09 cents per kilowatt-hour for the first 200 kWh.The company charges .11 cents per kilowatt-hour for all electrical usage in excess of 200 kWh. How many kilowatt-hours were used if a monthly electric bill was $57.06? The answer I came up with is 360, is that right? and also how do I set it up in an equation form?

Second Problem:
A construction worker earned $17 per hour for the first 40 hr of work and $25.50 per hour for work in excess of 40 hr. One week she earned $896.75. How much overtime did she work? I came up with 8.5 hrs over-time worked. Again I don't know how to set up the equation to come up with the answer.

I need some pointers on how to figure out story problems! If you have any suggestions that would help me out I would be very grateful.

Jenny pose la question :
How do you figure out a piecewise function by hand?

( 2x (if x is not equal to 0)
( 0 (if x is not equal to 0)
