Suppose f(x) is a piecewise function defined as follows

f(x) = 2x^2+2 ---- > x < 1

= 2x^2 - 3x ----- > 1 ≤ x ≤ 2

= 2 - (6/x) ----- > x > 2

Graph f(x) for 0 ≤ x ≤ 3Find the left and right hand limits of f(x) as x approaches 1 and as x approaches 2

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know how to go about graphing this piece wise graph. Can I plug in any number that satisfies the inequality and then graph the x and y values for each equation, and then connect the coordinates? That doesn't seem right, because I need the same x value for each function, but that doesn't seem possible for the inequalities. What numbers can I plug in?
