Example 19 Show that the function defined by f (x) = sin (x2) is a continuous function. 𝑓(𝑥) = ﷐sin﷮﷐﷐𝑥﷮2﷯﷯﷯ Let 𝑔(𝑥) = ﷐sin﷮𝑥﷯ & ℎ﷐𝑥﷯ = ﷐𝑥﷮2﷯ ﷐𝑔 𝑜 ℎ﷯﷐𝑥﷯ = g﷐ℎ﷐𝑥﷯﷯ = 𝑔﷐﷐𝑥﷮2﷯﷯ = ﷐sin﷮﷐﷐𝑥﷮2﷯﷯﷯ = 𝑓﷐𝑥﷯ So we can write 𝑓﷐𝑥﷯ = 𝑔 𝑜 ℎ Here 𝑔﷐𝑥﷯ = ﷐sin﷮𝑥﷯ is continuous & ℎ﷐𝑥﷯ = ﷐𝑥﷮2﷯ is continuous being a polynomial . We know that if two function 𝑓 & ℎ are continuous then their composition 𝑔𝑜ℎ is continuous ⇒ Hence 𝑔𝑜ℎ﷐𝑥﷯ is continuous ⇒ 𝑓﷐𝑥﷯ is continuous .
