1. Given the three functions defined below, answer the following questions:
 $$p(x) = \begin{cases} x + 1, & \text{if } x < -1 \\ 4, & \text{if } -1 < x < 2 \\ -x - 1, & \text{if }x \ge 2 \end{cases}$$ $$q(x) = 3(x - 1)^2$$ $$\displaystyle r(x) = \frac{1}{4 - 2x}$$

25. What is the minimum value of $$p(x)$$?
26. Solution It doesn't have one
27. What is the maximum value of $$q(x)$$?
28. Solution It doesn't have one
29. What is the minimum value of $$q(x)$$?
30. Solution 0
31. Sketch the graph of $$y = p(x)$$
32. Solution 33. Sketch the graph of $$y=q(x)$$
34. Solution 2. Rewrite the following as piecewise functions:
1. $$y = |x|$$
2. Solution $$y = \begin{cases} x, & \text{if } x \ge 0 \\ -x, & \text{if }x < 0 \end{cases}$$
3. $$y = 2 \left|x - 4 \right| + 1$$
4. Solution $$y = \begin{cases} 2x - 7, & \text{if } x \ge 4 \\ -2x + 9, & \text{if }x < 4 \end{cases}$$
5. $$\displaystyle y=-3 \left| 2x+16 \right| - 7$$
6. Solution $$y = \begin{cases} -6x - 55, & \text{if } x \ge -8 \\ 6x + 41, & \text{if }x < -8 \end{cases}$$
3. The graph of $$y = x^2$$ contains the points A(0, 0) and B(1, 1). Describe the graph of $$y = -2(x - 4)^2 + 3$$, and give the coordinates of the points that correspond to A and B on the transformed graph.
4. Solution $$y = -2(x - 4)^2 + 3$$ would be a parabola that is flipped over the x-axis, stretched vertically by a factor of 2, moved up 3, and moved right 4. Point A would become (4, 3), and Point B would become (5, 1).
5. Describe the graph of $$\displaystyle y = \frac{|6 - x|}{3}$$. A(0, 0) and B(1, 1) are on the graph of $$y = |x|$$. What are the coordinates of the corresponding points on the transformed graph?
6. Solution This would be a V, squished vertically by a factor of 3, flipped over the y axis (which doesn't make it look different) and moved to the right by 6. The vertex becomes (6, 0), and the point (1, 1) becomes $$\displaystyle \left( 5, \frac{1}{3} \right)$$
7. Using 2 rules, give the piecewise definition of the function whose graph is below 8. Solution $$\displaystyle f(x) = \begin{cases} |x + 1| - 2, & \text{if } -2 \le x \lt 3 \\ -\frac{2}{3}\left(x - 6 \right) + 1, & \text{if } x \ge 3 \\ \end{cases}$$
9. Given $$\displaystyle f(x) = \frac{2}{3}x+\frac{4}{5},$$ find $$\displaystyle f^{-1}(x)$$ in standard form.
10. Solution $$15x - 10y = 12$$
