Lecture 9: Continuity (Section 2.5) Def. A function f is continuous at a number a if lim x ! a f ( x ) = f ( a ) : If f is deflned on an interval near x = a but is not continuous there, then f is discontinuous at a . The deflnition implies three conditions for continuity: 1. 2. 3. On an interval for which a function is continuous its graph has no jumps, holes, or gaps.

There are two types of discontinuities at a point x = a . Removable Nonremovable Jump Discontinuity Inflnite Discontinuity

ex. Consider the following graph: 6 - ? ± At which numbers is f discontinuous? What type of discontinuity? Can we deflne or redeflne f ( x ) to make it continuous at any of those values?
