Looking around in your own country, discuss two practical applications in which “piecewise functions” are used either explicitly or implicitly.

### Answer & Explanation

Step 1
Piecewise functions are functions which are defined by multiple fuction for different disjoint subdomain.
Example : consider signum function, it has domain $\left(-\propto ,\propto \right)$ and is defined as :

Practical applications in which piecewise function is used :
Example 1 : Taxi fare system - If the distance on the meter is within 1 km than $\mathrm{}5$ is taken and for further each kilometer $\mathrm{}2$ is taken. This scenario depicts peicewise nature.
Step 2
Example 2 : The scolarship program - If your annual income is less than $\mathrm{}10000$ than full scholarship of $\mathrm{}1000$ will be given otherwise no scholarship will be given. This scenario also have piecewise nature.
