    Suppose that f:R to R is differentiable at c and that f(c)=0. Show that g(x):=|f(x)| is differentiable at c if and only if f'(c)=0.

    \[g'(x)=\frac{f(x)}{|f(x)|}\cdot f'(x)\]so I guess I'm stuck on showing how to deal with the intederminacy of plugging in x=c=0

    I guess we must show that\[\frac{f(0)}{|f(0)|}\neq0\]

    \[\Large f'(x)=|\frac{f(x)-f(0)}{x-c}-f'(c)|<\epsilon\]

    this is the epsilon-delta definition of diff. at c..

    sorry should be this\[\Large f'(x)=|\frac{f(x)-f(c)}{x-c}-f'(c)|<\epsilon\]
