# Suppose F(x) = X2 + 1 X ≤ 2 3x  1 Given That

 Anonymous From: -Posts: -Votes: - Suppose f(x) = x2 + 1 x ≤ 2 3x  1 Given that 2 < x < 4 9  2x 4 ≤ x On each of the intervals (-∞, 2), (2, 4), and (4,∞), f is a polynomial function, and so, according to the reading in section 2.4, f is continuous on each of these intervals. Is f either left or right continuous (or both) at x = 2 Is f either left or right continuous (or both) at x = 4 Draw the graph of f ## Answer No.1

 Anonymous From: -Posts: -Votes: - AT x=2: left limit of 'f' is 2^2+1=5. right limit of 'f' is 3*2-1=5 f(2)=5 hence 'f' is both left and right continuous at =2. at x=4: left limit is 3*4-1=11 right limit is 9-2*4=1. f(4)=1 'f' is right continuous but not left continuous.  ### Your Comment/Solution
