# You just recently opened a business that will be selling items on the Internet. You don' t actually have a physical store that people can come to, so you will be shipping all the items to your customers. You want to base the shipping fees charged on the weight of the item that is purchased. Create a piecewise function that includes your shipping charges for items, including at least three to five weight differences. In your post, include the name of your store, the items you sell, and show your shipping-charge function. With the function state the rules and domain intervals where they apply. Also address the following questions: Is your shipping-charge function a step function

Shipping fee is based on the weight of the item purchased

Name of the store - MIMI Electronics

Items sold - Consumer electronics, mobiles phones, laptops, wearable devices, accessories, digital watches etc

Shipping charges-

Weight Shipping fee

0-1 kg \$ 5.00

1-2 kg \$ 10.00

2-4 kg \$ 15.00

4-7 kg \$ 20.00

7-10 kg \$ 30.00

10 kg + \$ 50.00

Shipping fee function

F (x) = 5 for all x [0,1]

F (x) = 10 for all x (1,2]

F (x) = 15 for all x (2,4]

F (x) = 20 for all x (4,7]

F (x) = 30 for all x (7,10]

F (x) = 50 for all x (10, infinity)

shipping charge function is a step function where the steps are mentioned in terms of weight.

Shipping charge could also be determined using a piece wise function where the shipping fee is fixed for each piece and is charged based on number of pieces ordered instead of weight of the order
