(x^{2}1) y = 1
Example 3
Draw the graph of the function defined as
y = x^{2} when x < 0 ........ ......(1)
y = x when 0 £ x < 1 ........ (2)
y = 1/x when x > 1 ............ (3)
Solution :
i) The point is restricted to move in the IInd Quad. along
the curve whose equation is y = x2
ii) Then in the Ist Quad. it moves along the bit of the straight line y = x.
iii) Lastly in the Ist Quad. it takes a turn and began to move along the curve y = 1/x.
