Can you have a piecewise function defined like: f(x)= x+3 if x<=3 2x if x>=3 Or do you need to eliminate the equal from one of those? Plugging in 3 gives 6 in either equations, and so, do you just arbitrarily pick one for if x=3?

In this case, the function is continuous at That may not always be the case.
