How do I know if a graph has removable continuity, jump, or infinite? What is the difference?

  1. The only removable one is a point discontinuity, in which a single point on the graph is missing. The other two discontinuities, jump and infinite, are nonremovable. A jump discontinuity is when the graph "jumps" in y-value and does not connect, while an infinite discontinuity is an asympotote.
