I have a couple of questions that I'm not sure how to do!

1) Given f(x) = (x^2 - 2x + 1) for x does not equal 1 and (k) for x = 1

Determine the value of k for which f is continuous for all real x.

a) 0

b) 1

c)2

d)3

e)none of the above

i think the anser is a but i'm really not sure how to solve this.

2) The graph of y = sinx / x has

I. a vertical asymptote at x=0

II. a horizontal asymptote at y=0

III. an infinite number of zeros

a) I only

b) II only

c) III only

d) I and II only

e) II and III only

I think the answer is d but I'm not positive.

If someone could please help me that would be greatly appreciated! :)

you are right on #2

as x gets larger, you are dividing by an increasingly larger number, so the result goes to zero

also sin(x) fluctuates between +1 and -1 so crosses the x-axis again and again.

#1 ?

are you sure you typed the function correctly?

The way you have it, it is simply a parabola, which would be continuous for every x.

Where does the k come in?

The question is quite confusing.

Haha I know! I did type it in right... It really is confusing because I don't have a clue what to do with the k!

But thank you for your help on question #2!! :)
