To determine

To sketch : The graph of the given function.

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

Given information :

  f(x)={1        if  x1x+1   if  x>1

Graph :

    x0124513
    f(x)1135611

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.2, Problem 34E

The above curve is the graph of the given piecewise defined equation.

Interpretation : All the values of f(x) are positive. The part of the graph to the left of x=1 coincides with the graph of f(x)=1 and the part of the graph to the right of x=1 coincide with the graph of f(x)=x+1 .
