  1. Sketch the graph of the piecewise function g(x) below. 1-24 HW eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎

    1. State the domain and range of g(x).

    2. Is g(x) continuous at x = 2? Explain.

    3. Is g(x) continuous on all values of x?

Consider the domain and range of each piece separately . Then combine.
Domain: Both 2x and 3x − 2 have a domain of all real numbers.
Range: 2x on x ≤ 2 has a range of 0 < y ≤ 4 and 3x − 2 on x > 2 has a range of 4 < y.

Later in this course we will learn a formal definition of continuity. For now, think about what continuous means to you. Now look at the graph at x = 2. Make a conclusion and justify.

Consider other values of x, other than x = 2. Is the function continuous at these point? Is there anywhere where the function will not be continuous?
