Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well certainly you can't have 0 on the bottom of the fraction, so we know that it is not continuous there. Also notice that you can cancel x on top and bottom. leaving you with f(x)=3. So it turns out that you have a HOLE at x=0. Everywhere else is going to be 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0After x>0, it's 3. But before x<0, it's 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And it's not a hole, it's a jump discontinuity, so there is no removable discontinuity
