    You should not worr y about the denominator. It is continious at any x except at x=0. All you have to examine is the function g(x) = [x]. Where is the function g(x) discontinuous?

    check right and left limits at x=-1/2 and x=1 If right limits are equal to left limits the function is continuous

    Iam not able to deal with [x] ! :-( When there is a positive number inside [x] , that's ok with me , but when there is a negative number , Iam not able to apply the left/right hand limit ! Please help

    [-1.5] = -2. More formally, \[ \lfloor-a \rfloor = - \lceil a \rceil \]

    You do not have negative numbers now, you have 1 and 1/2

    Ok apply LHL to [x] where x->-1/2

    [ -1/2 ] = [-0.5]=-1

    [x} is constant at any open interval having end points n, n+1 or n is a positive or negative integer.

    so -1/2 is in the interval (-1,0). Is {x] continuous at -1/2?
