    Post Period Function:Graph

    Hi Guys,

    Looking for some help to draw a period graph.I'm confused by the format
    the equations are given in..

    Here is the information.

    f(x) has period of 2.

    f(x)=c(x+1) when x is greater than and equal to -1 but less than 0
    f(x)=c(x-1) when x is greater than 0 but less than or equal to 1.

    Hope someone can advise ?

    Regards, Rossco

    You are given the function over a fundamental period, just graph it over
    the interval (-1,1), then use the periodicity property to extend the graph
    outside this region (f(x+2k)=f(k), for all k in Z).
