Ex 5.1, 16 Discuss the continuity of the function f, where f is defined by 𝑓(𝑥)={█(−&2, 𝑖𝑓 𝑥≤−1@2&𝑥, 𝑖𝑓 −1<𝑥≤1@2, 𝑖𝑓 𝑥>1 )┤ Since we need to find continuity at of the function We check continuity for different values of x When x < −1 When x = −1 When −1 < x < 1 When x = 1 When x > 1 Case 1 : When x < −1 For x < −1, f(x) = −2 Since this constant It is continuous ∴ f(x) is continuous for x < −1 Case 2 : When x = −1 f(x) is continuous at 𝑥 =−1 if L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(−1) if lim┬(x→〖−1〗^− ) 𝑓(𝑥)=lim┬(x→〖−1〗^+ ) " " 𝑓(𝑥)= 𝑓(−1) Since there are two different functions on the left & right of −1, we take LHL & RHL . LHL at x → −1 lim┬(x→〖−1〗^− ) f(x) = lim┬(h→0) f(−1 − h) = lim┬(h→0) 2(−ℎ) = 2 × 0 = 0 RHL at x → 0 lim┬(x→〖−1〗^+ ) f(x) = lim┬(h→0) f(−1 + h) = lim┬(h→0) 0 = 0 & 𝑓(−1) = −2 Hence, L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(−1) ∴ f is continuous at x=−1 Case 3 : When −1 < x < 1 For −1 < x < 1 f(x) = 2x Since this a polynomial It is continuous ∴ f(x) is continuous for −1 < x < 1 Case 4 : When x = 1 f(x) is continuous at 𝑥 =1 if L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(1) if lim┬(x→1^− ) 𝑓(𝑥)=lim┬(x→1^+ ) " " 𝑓(𝑥)= 𝑓(1) Since there are two different functions on the left & right of 1, we take LHL & RHL . LHL at x → 1 lim┬(x→1^− ) f(x) = lim┬(h→0) f(1 − h) = lim┬(h→0) 0 = 0 RHL at x → 1 lim┬(x→1^+ ) f(x) = lim┬(h→0) f(1 + h) = lim┬(h→0) 4(1+ℎ) = 4(1 + 0) = 4 & 𝑓(1) = 2(1) = 2 Hence, L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(1) ∴ f is continuous at x=1 Case 5: When x > 1 For x > 1, f(x) = 2 Since this constant It is continuous ∴ f(x) is continuous for x > 1 Thus, f(x) is continuous for all real numbers, i.e. f is continuous for all x ∈ R lim┬(x→〖−1〗^− ) 𝑓(𝑥) = lim┬(x→−1) (−2) = −2 lim┬(x→〖−1〗^+ ) 𝑓(𝑥) = lim┬(x→−1) 2𝑥 Putting x = − 1 = 2(−1) = − 2 And 𝑓(−2) = −2 Thus L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(−2) = −2 Hence 𝒇(𝒙) is continuous at x = −𝟏 Case 1 At x = −1 A function is continuous at x = − 1 if A function is continuous at x = 1 if if L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(1) i.e. lim┬(x→1^− ) 𝑓(𝑥) = lim┬(x→1^+ ) 𝑓(𝑥) = 𝑓(1) & 𝑓(1) = 2(1) = 2 Thus L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(−2) Hence 𝒇(𝒙) is continuous at x = 1 lim┬(x→1^− ) 𝑓(𝑥) = lim┬(x→1^− ) 2𝑥 Putting x = 1 = 2(1) = 2 lim┬(x→1^+ ) 𝑓(𝑥) = lim┬(x→1^+ ) 2 = 2 Case 3 For 𝑥\<−1 𝑓(𝑥) = −2 Thus, 𝑓(𝑥) is a constant function . & Every constant function is continuous for all real number. Hence 𝒇(𝒙) is continuous at 𝒙\<−𝟏 Case 4 For 𝑥>1 𝑓(𝑥) = 2 Thus, 𝑓(𝑥) is a constant function . & Every constant function is continuous for all real number. Hence 𝒇(𝒙) is continuous at 𝒙>𝟏 Case 5 For −1≤𝑥≤1 𝑓(𝑥) = 2𝑥 So, f(x) is a polynomial & Every polynomial is continuous. ⇒ 𝒇(𝒙) is continuous at −𝟏<𝒙≤𝟏 Thus, f(x) is continuous for all real numbers, i.e. f is continuous for all x ∈ R
