Example 15 (Introduction) Find all the points of discontinuity of the greatest integer function defined by 𝑓 (π‘₯) = [π‘₯], where [π‘₯] denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to π‘₯ Greatest Integer Function [x] Going by same Concept Example 15 Find all the points of discontinuity of the greatest integer function defined by 𝑓(π‘₯) = [π‘₯], where [π‘₯] denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to π‘₯Given 𝑓(π‘₯) = [π‘₯] Here, Continuity will be measured at – integer numbers, and non integer numbers Thus, we check continuity for When x is an integer When x is not an integerCase 1 : When x is not an integer f(x) = [x] Let d be any non integer point Now, f(x) is continuous at π‘₯ =𝑑 if (π₯𝐒𝐦)┬(𝐱→𝒅) 𝒇(𝒙)= 𝒇(𝒅) L.H.S (π₯𝐒𝐦)┬(𝐱→𝒅) 𝒇(𝒙) = lim┬(x→𝑑) [π‘₯] Putting x = d = [𝑑] R.H.S 𝒇(𝒅) =[𝑑] Since lim┬(x→𝑑) 𝑓(π‘₯)= 𝑓(𝑑) 𝑓(π‘₯) is continuous for all non-integer points Case 2 : When x is an integer f(x) = [x] Let c be any non integer point Now, f(x) is continuous at π‘₯ =𝑐 if L.H.L = R.H.L = 𝑓(𝑐) if (π₯𝐒𝐦)┬(𝐱→𝒄^βˆ’ ) 𝒇(𝒙)=(π₯𝐒𝐦)┬(𝐱→𝒄^+ ) " " 𝒇(𝒙)= 𝒇(𝒄) Value of c can be 1, βˆ’3, 0 LHL at x β†’ c lim┬(x→𝑐^βˆ’ ) f(x) = lim┬(hβ†’0) f(c βˆ’ h) = lim┬(hβ†’0) [π’„βˆ’π’‰] = lim┬(hβ†’0) (π’„βˆ’πŸ) = (π’„βˆ’πŸ) RHL at x β†’ c lim┬(x→𝑐^+ ) g(x) = lim┬(hβ†’0) g(c + h) = lim┬(hβ†’0) [𝒄+𝒉] = lim┬(hβ†’0) 𝐜 = 𝒄 Since LHL β‰  RHL ∴ f(x) is not continuous at x = c Thus, we can say that f(x) is not continuous at all integral points.
