  • This graph is composed of four straight line segments.  You'll need to determine the slope, y-intercept and domain for each of them.   Look at the first segment, the one on the extreme left.  Verify yourself that the slope of this line segment is 1 and that the y-intercept would be 0 if you were to extend this segment all the way to the y-axis.  Thus, the rule (formula, equation) for this line segment would be f(x)=1x+0, or just f(x)=x, for (-3,-1).  Use a similar approach to write rules for the remaining three line segments.

    Present your answer like this:
                   x, (-3,-1)
    f(x) =      -1, (-1,0)
