    at x=2 function is not defind.

    We 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 \[\large (x^2-2x)=0\]Factoring an x out of each term gives us: \[\large x(x-2)=0\] Know what to do from here to solve for x? :D Need to take advantage of the Zero Factor Property! :D

    Aeron mentioned one of the values, but there is also another one!! Make sure you don't miss that trouble maker! :3
