1.4   Continuity

EXERCISES


For problems #1-3, let  g  be the piecewise defined function given by the equations on the left and graphed on the right:

1.  Is g continuous at x=2?

2.  Where does g have step discontinuities?

3.  Where does g have removable discontinuities?


4.  Classify any points of discontinuity of f over the graphed interval.


Find any points of discontinuity of the functions in problems #5-10.   Specify whether or not the discontinuity is removable.
