(a) Is this function continuous on the given interval? If it is continuous, type "continuous". If not, give the x -value where the function is not continuous.

Is is continous? If not? what interval then?

**Reiny**, Thursday, September 11, 2008 at 1:05pmwhen x=6, you would be dividing by zero

so it is discontinuous at x=6

in general, a discontinuity will result when a division by zero results or an even root of a negative number is attempted, such as the square root, fourth root, sixth root etc.
