Section 2.3: Continuity Continued
Intermediate Value Theorem
If y = f(x) is continuous on a closed interval [a,b], then it takes on every value between f(a) and f(b) (and sometimes a couple extras)
The intermediate value theorem implies that a continuous function will have no breaks (no jumps, holes, or limits whose values approach infinity).
If your car is traveling at some speed, it must have gone every speed between 0 mph and your current speed during your drive.
1) Sums: f + g
2) Differences: f – g
3) Products: f • g
4) Scalar Multiples: k • f (for any real number k)
5) Quotients: f/g (as long as g(c) is nonzero)
6) Compositions: f о g
Show that is everywhere continuous.
Where is continuous? Where is it not?
We notice that g(x) has a “removable” discontinuity.
What does this mean? Which other discontinuities are NOT removable?
How do we remove it?
How do we extend the function to a new function, h(x)?
