    56. Graph the function f defined by

    -1 if x <= -1
    f(x) = x if -1 < x <= 3/2
    x^2 if 3/2 < x

    Specify the domain on which this function is continuous, and the points of discontinuity.

    62. Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to prove that the function defined by f(x) = x^3 + 4x^2 + x -1 has three real roots.
