**Steve**, Thursday, October 10, 2013 at 7:57pmusually there will be a fraction involved. Wherever the denominator is zero, f(x) will be undefined.

Or there may be a square root or logarith. f(x) not defined when the radicand is negative.

In general, look for values where f(x) is not defined; it is discontinuous there.

**Jonah**, Thursday, October 10, 2013 at 8:03pmWhat if there isn't a fraction at all and it's just a graph with a function on it? My homework doesn't have a given expression of a function just a graphical representation of it.

**Steve**, Friday, October 11, 2013 at 4:45amIf all you have is the graph, then if there are any vertical asymptotes or holes in the graph, that's where f(x) is discontinuous.

I mean, jeez. you must have an intuitive feel for what "continuous" means. Math usually tries to use words that already have meaning.
