The figure shows the graphs of the functions in Example 2. s In each case, the graph can’t be drawn without lifting the pen from the paper—because a hole or break or jump occurs in the graph. CONTINUITY

The kind of discontinuity illustrated in parts (a) and (c) is called removable. s We could remove the discontinuity by redefining f at just the single number 2. s The function is continuous. CONTINUITY ( ) 1 g x x = +
