anyway, ⌊x⌋ means we round down to the nearest integer so if x = 0.5, what's ⌊x⌋ equal to?

Vocaloid:

we are looking for the greatest integer that is LESS than 0.5

0.5<1

Vocaloid:

one last time we want an integer that is LESS than 0.5 1 is GREATER than 0.5 so it is not the answer

is it 0 ?

Vocaloid:

good, that's it!

Vocaloid:

now, if we take ⌊x⌋ + 3 where x = 0.5, we get 0 + 3 = 3 so which graph crosses the point (0.5,3)?

try one more time. make sure you are looking at the point (0.5,3) and examine each graph slowly and carefully.
