Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the function is discontinuous at that point.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have discontinuities whenever the DENOMINATOR is zero. So let's set the denominator equal to 0, and solve for x! Those values of X are the trouble makers! :O \[\large (x^22x)=0\]Factoring an x out of each term gives us: \[\large x(x2)=0\] Know what to do from here to solve for x? :D Need to take advantage of the Zero Factor Property! :D
