    Use the graph to find the limit and determine the continuity of the function.

    Sorry about that. My internet is giving me some troubles.

    Right, this is what I figured. Ok as you walk along the graph from left to right there is an obvious problem at \(x=-1\). What value do you approach(y value) as you get closer to \(x=-1\)

    There's a hole in the graph

    what value is y when you approach from the left?

    so \(\lim_{x\rightarrow c^{-}}f(x)=2\) What about from the right?

    It gets closer to 0

    Yep so \(\lim_{x\rightarrow 2^{+}}f(x)=0\)

    now does \(2\ne 0\)?

    Yes, 2 doesn't equal zero.

    obviously not, thus \(\lim_{x\rightarrow c}f(x)\) does not exist

    That was much easier than I expected.

    now, since we cant just fill in one point and make it continuous, i.e. there is no one point that we can add so that we can draw the entire graph without lifting the pencil and thus is does not have a removable discontinuity .
