Ex 5.1, 32 Show that the function defined by 𝑓 𝑥﷯= cos﷮𝑥﷯﷯ is a continuous function. 𝑓(𝑥) = cos﷮𝑥﷯﷯ Let 𝑔(𝑥) = 𝑥﷯ & ℎ 𝑥﷯ = cos﷮𝑥﷯ 𝑔𝑜ℎ 𝑥﷯ = g ℎ 𝑥﷯﷯ = 𝑔 cos﷮𝑥﷯﷯ = cos﷮𝑥﷯﷯ = 𝑓 𝑥﷯ Hence 𝑓 𝑥﷯ = 𝑔𝑜ℎ 𝑥﷯ We know that, h(x) = cos﷮𝑥﷯ is continuous & g (x) = 𝑥﷯ is continuous as it is a modulus function We know that If two function 𝑔 𝑥﷯ & ℎ 𝑥﷯ both continuous then their composition is also continuous ∴ 𝑔𝑜ℎ 𝑥﷯ is continuous Thus, 𝒇 𝒙﷯ is continuous for all real values.
