    Thank you, MrAl. It was really kind of you.

    Are you sure? As far as I can see the solution is correct. Both composite functions will add up give a single pulse with height of "1". The height of composite functions is abs(0.5) and I think this is where you are making mistake reading the graph. To tell you the truth I did the same when I first looked at the solution; I thought solution was incorrect. Thanks.

    Regards

    Hi again,


    Ha ha, yeah, because they made that little tick mark opposite the "1" wayyy too small.
    These are some of the worst graphs of anything i've even seen in a technical writing.

    In the attachment i redrew that graph clearly showing the tick marks, but notice that other graph just to the right of the other one has a tick mark that surely looks to be greater than -1 yet it has a -1 next to it. Terrible :)

    Here's the redraw of that one function anyway...
