**One-Sided Limit One-Sided Limits**

The right-hand limit of f (x), as x approaches a, equals L written: if we can make the value f (x) arbitrarily close to L by taking x to be sufficiently close to the right of a. L a

**The left-hand limit of f (x), as x approaches a, equals M**

written: if we can make the value f (x) arbitrarily close to L by taking x to be sufficiently close to the left of a. M a

**Limit and Trig Functions**

From the graph of trigs functions we conclude that they are continuous everywhere

24
Tangent and Secant Tangent and secant are continuous everywhere in their domain, which is the set of all real numbers

26
**Limit and Exponential Functions**

The above graph confirm that exponential functions are continuous everywhere.

27
Asymptotes

28
Examples Find the asymptotes of the graphs of the functions

31
Continuity A function f is continuous at the point x = a if the following are true: f(a) a

32
**A function f is continuous at the point x = a if the following are true:**

f(a) a

33
**Definition of continuity**

The function f is continuous at the number c if Defined at c

34
**Types of Discontinuity**

1- Removable discontinuity f(a) is not defined or Exist f(a) is defined to be a number other than the value of limit.

35
2- Jump discontinuity

36
**3- Infinite discontinuity**

37
**Example Solution Discuss the continuity of f(x) at x = 2, where**

Removable discontinuity

38
**Example Solution Discuss the continuity of f(x) at x = 0, where**

Jump discontinuity

39
**Example Solution X=-3 Removable discontinuity X=0**

Infinite discontinuity X=5 Jump discontinuity X=2 The function is continuous

40
Example What value should b assigned to make the function continuous at x = 1 Solution

41
**Examples Continuous everywhere except at**

At which value(s) of x is the given function discontinuous? Continuous everywhere Continuous everywhere except at

42
**F is continuous everywhere else h is continuous everywhere else**

and and Thus F is not cont. at Thus h is not cont. at x=1. F is continuous everywhere else h is continuous everywhere else

43
**Continuous Functions If f and g are continuous at x = a, then**

A polynomial function y = P(x) is continuous at every point x. A rational function is continuous at every point x in its domain.

44
**Intermediate Value Theorem**

If f is a continuous function on a closed interval [a, b] and L is any number between f (a) and f (b), then there is at least one number c in [a, b] such that f(c) = L. f (b) f (c) = L f (a) a c b

45
Example f (x) is continuous (polynomial) and since f (1) < 0 and f (2) > 0, by the Intermediate Value Theorem there exists a c on [1, 2] such that f (c) = 0.
