\[f(x)= \frac{ 2x-4 }{ 3x-2 } at x=2\]

remember the definition: f is continous at x=a if \[ \large \lim_{x\to a}f(x)=f(a) \]

yes it is continuous..

it is defined at x=2 right

f(2)=0 \[\large \lim_{x\to 2}f(x)=0=f(2)\]

and also this is its graph http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=plot+%282x-4%29%2F%283x-2%29 as you can see the func. is continuous at x=2, no hole no infinity

ok. so if they were ask to list all the value of x for which the given function is not continuous...how would that work? Example: \[f(x)= \frac{ 3x-1 }{ 2x-6 }\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
the func. is discontinuous when denominator is 0
anonymous
  • anonymous
2x-6=0 x=3 so, for x=3 the func. is not continuous
anonymous
  • anonymous
and what about the numerator?
anonymous
  • anonymous
it can be any number, no problem with it.. look at its graph http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=plot+\frac{+3x-1+}{+2x-6+}

ok, so there's only one value of x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
in this case yes..
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok. so how about in this case. f(x) = 3x-2 if x<0 x^2+x if \[x \ge0\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
the func. is not continuous at x=0 why because limit does not exists when we approach to 0, from left limit is -2, from right limit is 0 http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=piecewise+[{{3x-2%2Cx%3C0}%2C{x^2%2Bx%2Cx%3E%3D0}}]
