want to try and guess which it is and I'll tell you if you're right or not?

@tjones89 infinite?

4. terenzreignz Group Title

Don't guess. :D A jump discontinuity is when the function approaches different limits from the left and the right. An infinite discontinuity is when the function approaches infinity from either the left or right. A point discontinuity is when the function approaches the same limit from both sides, but the function does not exist at said point. Continuity is, well, continuity.

Ok so its a point?

6. terenzreignz Group Title

No. Look closer. From the left, it approaches a value somewhat higher than the value it approaches from the right. In short, they do not approach the same limit from both sides :)

7. Math4Life Group Title

so jump??

8. terenzreignz Group Title

Yes
