These are both equations of lines, with a common point at    3,-6      extend the blue line to the left.......and starting at the far right blue dot, extend the line through the red dots down and to the right

the points without whole numbers I cannot graph . this is the only space I have it doesnt let me choose middle points.

Then just plot the whole numbers in the list.....and connect the dots as I explained....the lines will be the same....GLuck !

wouldnt it be marked as incorrect if I do need plot all the points?  indecision

SInce they are lines , you only need two points to draw each one....just make sure ONE of the points for both lines is the common point

3,-6

g(x) =  -2x ,  x ≥3

 

Let's just pick two x values ≥ 3   and stick them into the function

 

When x = 3,  y = -6.....so....(3, -6) is on the graph

When x = 4, y = -8.....so.....(4, -8) is on the graph

Plot  (3, -6)

Then...plot (4, -8).....draw a ray startting at (3, 6) and extend it through (4, -8)

 

 

g(x) = -(1/3)X - 5,  x ≤3

Again..let's pick x = 3   and put it into the function....and we have (-1/3)(3) - 5 = -1 - 5  = -6

So....the point (3, -6) is on the graph

Now.....pick anoher x value < 3.......0 is good

So   (-1/3)(0) - 5 =  -5

So (0, -5) is on this graph

Draw a ray from (-3, 6) through (0, -5)

 

The graph will look like this :

 

 

 

 

 

Of course...the lines (rays) will have "arrows" at their ends  

 

 

cool cool cool
