1) Let f(x) = {x²  for x < 1

{2x - 5  for x ≥ 1

(a) Graph the piecewise-function from x = -2 to x = 4.

(b) Find the domain for all f(x).

(c) Find the range for all f(x).

(d) Is f(x) continuous on its domain? Yes or No

(a)  Here's the graph : https://www.desmos.com/calculator/6ur4exjxcr

(b) The domain fo the first function  is  (-inf, 1)

The domain for the second function  is  [ 1, inf )

(c)  The range of the first function   is [ 0 , inf )

The range of the second function is  [ -3, inf )

(d) Not contunious....as the graph shows

Hey CPhill I found a mistake with your graph which threw me off so I fixed it here: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/tqvci9lcnt

As you can see you are graphing the function from x = -2 to x = 4 and your graph had the signs facing the wrong way. Maybe you can look it over and fix (b), (c), and (d) in the problem which I think affects it from the mistake.

Fixed....it doesn't affect anything

If   x^2   existed  at x  = 1    then  y  = 1

At x = 1  then the yvalue for 2x - 5  =  -3

So...as the graph shows  here : https://www.desmos.com/calculator/vydmkdw06y, it is not continuous...
