Your graph may look quite different from the above graph, and still be absolutely correct. (Doc #1011w.24.03)

Math1011 Section 2.5 2 Given the graph of ƒ : At what points on the interval [-5, 5] is ƒ discontinuous? Explain by indicating the type of discontinuity. -2 (infinite discontinuity) -1 (removable discontinuity) 1 (jump discontinuity) 3 (removable discontinuity) At what points on its domain is ƒ discontinuous? 1 (jump discontinuity) 3 (removable discontinuity) Note: x = -2 and x = -1 are not included as these points are not in the domain of ƒ.

Math1011 Section 2.5 4 Prove that the equation s³ = 10 has at least one real root. Let ƒ (s) = s³ - 10 and let us find c such that f(c) = 0. Show f(s) is continuous: f(s) is a polynomial and thus continuous. Pick two numbers a and b such that f (a) < 0 and f ( b) > 0. a = 0: f ( 0 ) = - 10 b = 3: f (3 ) = 27 – 10 = 17 Since ƒ (s) is continuous and ƒ (0) 0 ƒ (3), we know by the Intermediate Value Theorem that there exist some c between 0 and 3 such that ƒ (c) = 0.
