Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use the definition: the function is derivable at x=0 if \[ \large \lim_{x\to0}\frac{f(x)f(0)}{x0}=\lim_{x\to0}\frac{f(x)+1}{x} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just take the derivative of each piece, and replace \(x\) by \(0\) if you get the same answer, then yes, if you get a different answer, then no

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can pretty much do it with your eyeballs first one is 3 second one is \(10x+3\)and when you replace \(x\) by 0 in both you get 3
