Ex 5.1, 15 Discuss the continuity of the function f, where f is defined by 𝑓 𝑥= 2𝑥, 𝑖𝑓 𝑥<0 0, 𝑖𝑓 0≤𝑥≤1 4𝑥, 𝑖𝑓 𝑥>1 Case 1:- At x = 0 𝑓 is continuous at x = 0 if L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓 0 i.e. limx→ 0− 𝑓 𝑥 = limx→ 0+ = 𝑓 𝑥 = 𝑓 0 i.e. limx→ 0− 𝑓 𝑥 = limx→ 0+ = 𝑓 𝑥 = 𝑓 0 & 𝑓(𝑥) = 0 𝑓(0) = 0 Thus L.H.L = R.H.L Hence 𝒇 𝒙 is not continuous at 𝒙=𝟎 Case 2: At x = 1 𝑓 is continuous at x = 1 if if L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓 1 i.e. limx→ 1− 𝑓 𝑥 = limx→ 1+ = 𝑓 𝑥 = 𝑓 1 Thus L.H.L ≠ R.H.L Hence, 𝑓 𝑥 is not continuous at 𝒙=𝟏 Case 3:- 0≤𝑥<1 𝑓 𝑥 = 0 Since 𝑓 𝑥 is a constant function, it is continuous. ∴ 𝑓 𝑥 is continuous at 𝟎≤𝒙<𝟏 Case 4:- For 𝑥<0 𝑓 𝑥 = 2𝑥 𝑓 𝑥 is continuous, as it is a polynomial. Hence 𝒇 𝒙 is continuous for all real number less then 0 Case 5:- 𝑥>1 𝑓 𝑥 = 4𝑥 𝑓 𝑥 is continuous, as it is a polynomial. Hence 𝒇 𝒙 is continuous for all real number greater then 1 Hence points of discontinuity are x = 1 Thus, f is continuous for all x ∈ R − 𝟏
