# Determine all points x at which f is differentiable.

Not what you're looking for?

Let f(x) = { x|x| if x is rational
0 if x is irrational

determine all points x at which f is differentiable.

##### Solution Summary

The points at which a function is differentiable is determined. Rational and irrational functions are differentiated.

##### Solution Preview

because,
f(x) = x*|x| : if x is rational
and = 0 : if x is irrational

In such problem before going for differentiability, go for continuity.
for x = a (a positive rational number) != 0
Right hand limit (RHL):
Lt (h->0) f(a+h) = 0
( because, a+h can be any irrational ...
