Isaac lives miles away from his school. School ended at and Isaac began his walk home with his friend Tate, who lives mile away from the school, in the direction of Isaac’s house. Isaac stayed at Tate’s house for a while and then started home. On the way, he stopped at the library. Then he hurried home. The graph is a piecewise-defined function that shows Isaac’s distance from home during the time it took him to arrive home.
