To determine

## To sketch : The graph of the given function.

Expert Solution

### Explanation of Solution

Given information :

Graph :

f(x)={3        if  x<2x-1    if  x2

 x 0 1 2 4 5 −1 f(x) 3 3 1 3 4 3 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=2 coincide with the graph of f(x)=3 and the part of the graph to the right of x=2 coincide with the graph of f(x)=x1 .
