y = x + 2 y = 2 y = 1/2 x + 1 You only want the piece of the first graph in the region of the palne described by x < 1.
I then cut out these three pieces and put them om one graph
I'm almost done. The problem I see is that the algebraic description of the function says that when x = 1 the value of the function is 2, and this is not clear from the graph. I would put at dot at (1,2) to show this.
graph of y = f(x) Penny
