Question 1
The function f (x) = {■8(sin𝑥/𝑥 " + cos x, if x " ≠" 0" @𝑘 ", if x " =" 0" )┤ is continuous at x = 0, then the value of k is
(A) 3 (B) 2
(C) 1 (D) 1.5
At 𝒙 = 0
f(x) is continuous at 𝑥=0
if L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(0)
if if lim┬(x→0^− ) 𝑓(𝑥) = lim┬(x→0^+ ) 𝑓(𝑥) = 𝑓(0)
LHL at x → 0
(𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝐱→𝟎^− ) f(x) = lim┬(h→0) f(0 − h)
= (𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝐡→𝟎) f(−h)
= lim┬(h→0) sin〖(−ℎ)〗/((−ℎ)) " + cos (− h)"
= (𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝐡→𝟎) 〖−𝒔𝒊𝒏〗𝒉/(−𝒉) " +" (𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝐡→𝟎) " cos h"
= lim┬(h→0) sinℎ/ℎ " + " (𝑙𝑖𝑚)┬(ℎ→0) " cos h"
Using lim┬(x→0) sin𝑥/𝑥=1
= 1 + "cos 0"
= 1 + 1
= 2
RHL at x → 0
(𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝒙→𝟎^+ ) f(x) = lim┬(h→0) f(0 + h)
= (𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝐡→𝟎) f(h)
= lim┬(h→0) sinℎ/ℎ " + cos h"
= (𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝐡→𝟎) 𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒉/𝒉 " + " (𝒍𝒊𝒎)┬(𝐡→𝟎) " cos h"
Using lim┬(x→0) sin𝑥/𝑥=1
= 1 + "cos 0"
= 1 + 1
= 2
At 𝒙=𝟎
𝑓(𝑥)=𝑘
𝒇(𝟎)=𝒌
Since f(x) is continuous at x = 0.
L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(0)
𝑓(0)=2
𝒌=𝟐
So, the correct answer is (B)
