    hmmm...weird question I must say....how can you talk about continuity if the function doesn't exist?

    Perhaps they mean a certain value at which f(x) is not defined?

    discontinuity in general can be removable....

    The only one that may not be defined on the function f would be infinite, right?

    I mean, there are three types. Infinite, removable and jump. Jump and removable can still be defined on the function, but infinite is usually caused by a 'divide by zero' issue.

    in the 1st function i got =(10) defined then check on the right side and the left side and got 10 and 4 but am having problem on identifying when is removable or non-removable

    A removable discontinuity is when the finite limit at a point 'a' exists, but does not equal the value of the function at that point\[\lim_{x \rightarrow a}f(x)\neq f(a)\]

    if the limit does not exist at the point in question then the discontinuity is not removable
