Ex 5.1, 3 Examine the following functions for continuity. (b) f (x) = 1/(π‘₯ βˆ’ 5) , x β‰  5 f (x) = 1/(π‘₯ βˆ’ 5) At x = 5 f (x) = 1/(5 βˆ’ 5) = 1/0 = ∞ Hence, f(x) is not defined at x = 5 So, we check for continuity at all points except 5 Let c be any real number except 5. f is continuous at π‘₯ = 𝑐 if (π₯𝐒𝐦)┬(𝐱→𝒄) 𝒇(𝒙) = 𝒇(𝒄) LHS (π₯𝐒𝐦)┬(𝐱→𝒄) 𝒇(𝒙) = lim┬(π‘₯βŸΆπ‘)⁑〖1/(π‘₯ βˆ’ 5)γ€— = 1/(𝑐 βˆ’ 5) RHS 𝒇(𝒄) = 1/(𝑐 βˆ’ 5) Since, L.H.S = R.H.S ∴ Function is continuous at x = c (except 5) Thus, we can write that f is continuous for all real numbers except 5 ∴ f is continuous at each 𝐱 ∈ R βˆ’ {πŸ“}
