Solution Summary

To find the tangent line equation, it is important to find derivative f' first. To check if function is continuous or discontinuous, it is important to look at the transition point.

Solution Preview

Determine the values of x, if any, at which the function is discontinuous. At each number where f is discontinuous, state the condition(s) for continuity that are violated. (Select all that apply.)

(Select all that apply.)

The function f is discontinuous at x=0 because f is not defined at x=0

The function f is discontinuous at x=0 because f (x) does ...
