I'm confused as to how to graph piecewise functions. I know that you have already answered a question similar to this (I did my research first) but it didn't completely help me on my homework. I have to graph piecewise functions for the specified domains, and create a table for the absolute values. I know that two bars around a number means absolute value (two bars around -2 makes it +2) , but how do I graph and chart the absolute value for the following: f(x)= |x+3 | for -5≤x≤3 And then graph and chart: (on a separate graph): f(x)= {x if x≤0 {x+1 if x <0 thank you! ~RayvenAnswered by Penny Nom.     Piecewise functions 2006-11-08 From Kait:We discussed how to graph piecewise functions today and I'm very lost!! I'm sitting here staring at this problem that says: f(x){2x+1, if x <1 f(x){-x+4, if x is greater than or equal to 1.Answered by Penny Nom.     Piecewise functions 2006-09-24 From Claudia:hi! i was just looking at a question by someone else about piecewise functions, but i still don't get it. my problem is g(x){x+2 if x <-2} g(x){2x - 1 if x> or = -2}Answered by Penny Nom.     Piecewise functions 2006-03-21 From Kris:First Problem: Southeast Electric charges .09 cents per kilowatt-hour for the first 200 kWh.The company charges .11 cents per kilowatt-hour for all electrical usage in excess of 200 kWh. How many kilowatt-hours were used if a monthly electric bill was \$57.06? The answer I came up with is 360, is that right? and also how do I set it up in an equation form? Second Problem: A construction worker earned \$17 per hour for the first 40 hr of work and \$25.50 per hour for work in excess of 40 hr. One week she earned \$896.75. How much overtime did she work? I came up with 8.5 hrs over-time worked. Again I don't know how to set up the equation to come up with the answer. I need some pointers on how to figure out story problems! If you have any suggestions that would help me out I would be very grateful.Answered by Penny Nom.     Graphing a piecewise function 2003-08-24 From Amber:How do i begin to graph a piecewise function, absolute function or step function?Answered by Penny Nom.     Piecewise functions. 1999-10-20 From Jenny:How do you figure out a piecewise function by hand? e.x. ( 2x (if x is not equal to 0) f(x)=< ( 0 (if x is not equal to 0)Answered by Harley Weston.
