Problem set 1c2
Let f(x)=(x − a)g(x). Use the definition of the derivative to calculate that f'(a)= g(a), assuming that g is continuous.
In the solution how does f(a) go to 0?

f(x) = (x  a) g(x) so when x = a then f(a) = (a  a) g(a) = 0 (we substituted x = a in the function so (x  a) becomes (a  a) which is 0)
