Give a formula for a function that is continuous on its domain but whose graph consists of three distinct curves.

To determine

The formula of the function that is continuous on its domain but whose graph consists of three distinct curves.

Explanation

Assume the function,

f(x)=1(x1)(x2)(x3)

The function f(x) is not defined at x=1,2,3.

To draw the graph of f(x)=1(x1)(x2)(x3), first compute the value of f(x) for different values of x.

Compute the value of f(x) at x=1.5 by substituting x=1.5 in the equation f(x)=1(x1)(x2)(x3) as,

f(1.5)=1(1.51)(1.52)(1.53)=1(0.5)(0.5)(1.5)=2.667

Compute the value of f(x) at x=0.5 by substituting x=0.5 in the equation f(x)=1(x1)(x2)(x3) as,

f(0.5)=1(0.51)(0.52)(0.53)=1(0.5)(1.5)(2.5)=0.533

Compute the value of f(x) at x=3.5 by substituting x=3.5 in the equation f(x)=1(x1)(x2)(x3) as,

f(3.5)=1(3.51)(3.52)(3
