well it means having a gap... missing doesn't continue
i don't get it. why would this function be discontinuous
because its saying that at point 1 it breaks its doesnt continue the line, so you have to explain why? why it broke?
@zepdrix can u help?
\[\large f(x)=\frac{x}{x-1}\] In the land of math, we are never allowed to divide by 0. If we let \(x=1\), it turns the denominator into \(0\). Which gives us a fraction of the form \(\dfrac{1}{0}\), which is no beuno!! See how we're dividing by 0? So we say that the function is undefined, or in other words, has a `discontinuity` at x=1.
If we were to look at it graphically, it forms an asymptote at x=1. Remember what type of discontinuity that is?
infinite right? lol
yes good c:
ok thanks
