[rgb]0,0.07,0.45 Click on the graph to get an enlarged view.
Let the function
f
(
x
)
be given by the depicted graph on the
interval
[

]
.
List, in order, the maximal intervals on which
f
is continu
ous, separated by commas.
[rgb]0,0.07,0.45 Include endpoints at which
f
(
x
)
is onesided continuous on the
respective interval by square brackets [rgb]0.6,0,0 ’[’ or [rgb]0.6,0,0 ’]’ ,
and exclude endpoints by [rgb]0.6,0,0 ’(’ or [rgb]0.6,0,0 ’)’ where
f
(
x
)
is dis
continuous.
Indicate the values of
x
where
f
(
x
)
is discontinuous. Start
with the leftmost point. For each of the values state whether
f
(
x
)
is continuous from the right (input R), or from the left (in
put L).
