Homework Help: Calculus- continuity

Posted by John on Wednesday, June 16, 2010 at 7:12pm.

Discuss the continuity of
f(x)= sin x/x^2 - 9
That is, state where is it continuous/discontinuous and why.


Here was my original answer.
sinx is cont. because it's a trig function. It's cont. at -2pi, pi, -pi, and 2pi.
x^2 is cont. because it's raised to a rational power.
-9 is cont. because it's a polynomial.

He then put x= -3 + 3? at the bottom of my work.

I'm guessing that's where it's discontinuous. So f(x) is discontinuous where x= -3 and 3
