Since a domain is the range of the assigned value (x), the domain of this piecewise-defined function are:

  • a = 1.
  • b = 3.

What is a piecewise-defined function?

A piecewise-defined function can be defined as a type of function that is defined by two (2) or more mathematical expressions over a specific domain such as:

Based on the graph of the piecewise-defined function, we can deduce the following points;

When x < 1, we have:

f(x) = -x.

When 1 ≤ x < 3, we have:

f(x) = -1.

When x ≥ 3, we have:

f(x) = (x - 3)² - 1.

Since a domain is the range of the assigned value (x), we have:

  • a = 1.
  • b = 3.
