To sketch : The graph of the given function.

Expert Solution

Explanation of Solution

Given information :

  f(x)={x             if  x09x2        if 0<x3 x3          if x>3

Graph :

    x321012345
    f(x)321085012

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.2, Problem 46E

This is the graph of the given piecewise defined equation.

Interpretation : The part of the graph to the left of x=0 coincides with the graph of f(x)=x and the part of the graph to the right of x=3 coincides with the graph of f(x)=x3 . The part of the graph between x=0 and x=3 coincides with f(x)=9x2 .
