Is f(x)=(x^2-9x+14)/(x-7) differentiable at x=7? stuck between these two choices: a. No, b/c f'(x)=0 at x=7 v. No, b/c f(x) is not continuous at x=7

Ask yourself whether 7 is even part of the domain of the function. Does your function have a non-vertical tangent line at \((7,f(7))\)?

v is suppose to be "b"

Like if the point theyre looking for lies on the domain of \(f(x)\) then theres going to be a slope at that point

I'm leaning towards b

hmm me too :) let's see what lady bean has to say about it though

You cant differentiate a function that has any sharp turns, breaks, etc that will make your function "non smooth"

Yeah, i agree b is the right choice.
