Outline Piecewise-Defined Functions Graphing Piecewise-Defined Functions Applications Piecewise-Defined Functions Definition A piecewise-defined function is a function defined in terms of several formulas, one for each specified segment of the domain. Example f ( x ) = | x | = x if x 0 - x if x < 0 x y -2 -1 1 2 -2 -1 1 2 f ( x ) = | x | (1 , 1) ( - 1 , 1)
