    Exclamation Algebra II (I believe; can't find it in my textbook)

    Graph the following functions:
    a. y = [x - 2]

    Except the brackets aren't just brackets. They're rather funny-looking brackets; they look something like this:
    Instead of [], they look like
    ╓ ╖
    ╙ ╜
    The brackets aren't actually separated by their tops and bottoms being on different lines, but I couldn't find any alt codes/symbols that matched the exact appearance, even in Wikipedia's Table of Mathematical Symbols. How my math teacher got it on this paper is mystifying indeed... I couldn't find it in my Algebra II book, and so I've concluded that I'm completely lost.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well...

    Algebra II... as I said, I couldn't find it in my textbook, so I'm also rather confused. This is the first time I've had to use a math help forum, ehehe...

    EDIT: Sorry, Jhevon. It had been half an hour, and I'd begun to get panicky. >_> Forgive me?
