The graph of f ( ) = is one of the twelve basic functions. Guess which one, then graph f () on our calculator. Were ou right? If not, which of the basic twelve functions is f ()?

6 Piecewise Functions Piecewise Functions are simpl functions that have been broken into or more pieces where each piece is a portion of the graph with a limited domain. The limitations on the domain allow for the overall equation to pass the vertical line test, and thus be called a function. 18. The function = can be written as a piecewise function. Draw a graph of =, and then fill in the blanks below with the appropriate domain for each piece to complete the piecewise function representation of =. = ìï í ïî - if if 19. Write a piecewise function for the graph at the right. 0. Complete the following questions from our tetbook: page 1: #45 50 ask ourself self, do each of m graphs pass the vertical line test? 1. Your monthl cell phone bill is $9.99 and includes 450 antime minutes. After that, ou pa $0.45/minute. Write a piecewise function for the monthl cost of our cell phone as a function of the number of minutes ou talk.. In June 00, the cost, in cents, to mail a letter that weighs up to one ounce was $0.7. The cost increased $0. for each additional ounce (or portion thereof).

7 Precalculus Worksheet With a little practice, it is relativel simple to create a new function b adding, subtracting, multipling, or dividing two functions especiall if ou aren t asked to simplif the equations. When ou add, subtract, multipl or divide the functions in the problems from our tetbook, pa attention to the directions that sa state the domain. Find the domain of both functions, then find the domain of the function ou created. With that said Complete the following questions from our tetbook: page 17 #1, 5, 6 1. f ( ) = and g( ) = are shown in the graph below. Sketch the graph of the sum ( f g)( ) coordinates directl from the graph. Then graph the sum on our calculator and see how close ou came. + b adding the -. Net, ou are going to create composite functions. Again, think about what the domain of each function is separatel before finding the domain of the composite function. Complete the following questions from our tetbook: page 18 # You don t alwas have to create a new function in order to evaluate the function. If I write h( k ( 9) ) it means plug 9 into the function k, then plug the result into h. Complete the following questions from our tetbook: page 18 #9 and 5. In calculus, there is a rule called the chain rule (it is used to take a derivative of a composite function). In order to appl this rule, ou must determine what the inside and outside of a function is. This skill is equivalent to finding the two functions that make up a composite function. Complete the following questions from our tetbook: page 18 # 15, 17, and 0 6. If f and g are odd functions, show that the composite function f g is also odd.
