It looks like there's 2 parts to this function. one where x is between 0 and 1. another is from 1 to infinity. Do you understand this so far?

eviant:

yes

mhchen:

Okay so for the part from 0 to 1. There's a filled-in dot at x = 0, so 0 is included. But there is a open-circle at x=1. So for the first part of the function. $0 \le x<1$ Do you understand this?

eviant:

yes,0 is less than or equal to x, and x less than 1

@mhchen ?

mhchen:

yeah and in that interval between x=0 and 1, the function is f(x) = 2 |dw:1539922133461:dw| understand?

yes

what about the next function? @mhchen

mhchen:

Just follow the same steps. There's an open circle at x=1 and then it goes onto infinity. So the interval is $1<x$ right?

|dw:1539922393414:dw| and then we need to find out what the bottom function is. Since it's going towards the x-axis but not touching it, I think it's some type of 1/x They gave us 2 points. (1,1) and (2,0.5) to find the equation.

is that correct?
