Eplain., if # g() 5, if,, 3, if \$ 3 Solution The function is continuous at the points where it is pieced together if the functions being joined have the same -values at these points. Calculate the values of the function at 5 using the relevant equations: () 5 Calculate the values of the function at 5 3 using the relevant equations: 5 5 (3) The function is discontinuous, since there is a break in the graph at 5 3. The graph is made up of three pieces. One piece is part of an increasing line defined b 5 when #. The second piece is an increasing line defined b 5 when,, 3. The third piece is part of a parabola that opens down, defined b 5 when \$ 3. The two -values are the same, so the two linear pieces join each other at 5. The two -values are different, so the second linear piece does not join with the parabola at 5 3.
