consider k(t)=(e^t)/(e^t-7) on[-7,7]

Is this function continuous on the given interval? If it is continuous, type "continuous". If not, give the t -value where the function is not continuous.

The function is not continous and it is not continous on 7 (which is the t=value). Am I right?

    when t=7, your denomintor is e^0 which is 1, the numberator is e^7, so you would have a value of

    e^7/1 or e^7

  2. Is your denominator ((e^t)-7) or (e^(t-7))? The difference is important: if it's the first of these, the function would be discontinuous at t=ln(7). If it's the second, then it's not discontinuous over the range given.

    Explain, using the theorems, why the function is continuous at every number in its domain. F(x)= 2x^2-x-3 / x^2 +9 A) F(x) is a polynomial, so it is continuous at every number in its domain. B) F(x) is a rational function, so it

    1.Use the IVT to explain why the following is true. If f continuous on (a,b) and f(x) does not equal to zero for all x in the interval (a,b), then f(x) > for all x in the interval (a,b) or f(x) < 0 for all x in the interval (a,b).
