Can someone please help me with these few problems here?
Find the holes and points of discontinuity:
In the first, examine x=1
and in the second, examine x=-2. Look at the numerator also at that same point.
Oh, I am so sorry, I typed the wrong thing. For the first, I meant:
Wouldn't the pt of discontinuity be 0 because you set 3x^4 equal to 0.
And for the second, I got x=-2 as the hole and -2 and 0 as the pts of discontinuity.
This is my work:
So you have:
so I am assuming you typed the second one correctly, but your work is not correct.
the (x+2)/(x+2) cancelled, which would be 0/0 when x=-2,
so there would be a "hole" when x=-2
your final expression contains x as a denominator, we cannot divide by 0, so the expression is discontinuous when x=0
I did say the hole was at x=-2. So there are no points of discontinuity, then?
to be speaking of points you have to have a function.
is the expression in the form y = ... or f(x)=...?
you merely gave an expression.
If a function is discontinuous there is usually an asymptote, which is a line that the graph will approach but can never ever reach.
in the case of your second expression, that asymptote is x=0, the y-axis.
so then since you are saying my second expression has an asymptote that means it is a function? so then doesn't that mean there are points of discontinuity?
