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?
