    Solve. Find the point where the graph of the function has a horizontal tangent. f(x)=4x^2+ 5x+ 2

    Find all points "x" where the function whose graph is shown below is discontinuous.

    A function f(x), a point c, the limit of f(x) as x approaches c, and a positive number ɛ is given. Find a number δ> 0 such that for all x,0<|x - c|<δ ⟶ |f(x)- L| <ɛ.
    f(x)=5x+ 9, L=29, c=4, and ɛ= 0.01

    Use the graph of the function f(x) to evaluate the limit, or state that the limit does not exist.

    1. If f(x) =7x + 11 and g(x) =5x- 1, find f(g(x)). What is f(g(2))?
    Solution:
    f(g(x)) = f(5x-1) = 7(5x-1)+11 = 35x-7+11 = 35x + 4
    Put x = 2 in f(g(x)) = 35x + 4 to find the value of f(g(2))
    f(g(2)) = 35(2)+4 = 70+4 = 74

    Solution:

    Average rate of change =
    Answer: -34
