Here is the actual question:

Assume that postage rates are \$0.44 for the first ounce, plus \$0.20 for each additional ounce, and that each letter carries one \$0.44 stamp and as many \$0.20 stamps as necessary. Graph the function f that models the number of stamps on a letter weighing x ounces over the interval (0,5].

I need the function that this word problem makes. I really need step by step instructions but, I have no idea how to do it. Please help.

Each letter carries one 0.44 stamp and as many 0.20

f(x0=0.44x+0.20...................................................

So how do I go about solving it now? I think it is supposed to have some sort of piecewise function.
