identify and explain all the kinds of discontinuity for y = (x + 4)/(x^2 - 16)

  • calculus -

    if x = 4 or x = -4, the denominator is 0 so the function is undefined at those points.
    Sketch a graph of this equation roughly between x = -5 and x = +5 and draw your conclusions based on the graph
