    1. Show that a polynomial function is continuous at every point of R.

    We use the following properties of continuous functions to prove the fact.

    I. If f(x) and g(x) are continuous functions at a point x=a, then (f+g)(x) is continuous at x=a and also f(x).g(x) is continuous at x=a
    Using this, we can see that f(x)=xn is ...
