I don't know what to write for question b and c.

1 a)Determine the values of x for which the function f(x) = 3/(√x^2+3x-4) is continuous.

Values of x are -4 and 1.
--------------------------------------

c) Why is it important in determining the continuity of the function?

• Calculus -

a) correct

b) on your graph, x = -4 and x = 1 are vertical asymptotes.

c) causes all kinds of headaches in such calculations as finding definite integrals, or even just making a sketch of the graph
