    Discontinuity is where the graph is defined near a cetain point but not at the exact point. Basically the discontinuity is at the number which makes the function undefined in this case you take the denominator 4x-24 and see which value makes it zero. So you can do 4x-24=0 and solve for x which equals 6. So the graph is discontinuous at 6.
