Solution. The Product Law requires the limit of each factor to exist. However, lim x / 2 tan x does not exist. Recall that tan x = sin x cos x . Thus lim x / 2- = + and lim x / 2+ = , and either of these imply the limit does not exist. square 1.2. Exercise 2.4.31. Determine the points at which the function f ( x ) = tan(sin x ) is discontinuous and state the type of discontinuity: removable, jump, infinite, or none of these. Solution. Recall that tan x is discontinuous at x = k/ 2 for odd k . However, we have 1 sin x 1, and tan x is continuous on [ 1 , 1], so tan(sin x ) is continuous everywhere. square 1.3. Exercise 2.4.48. Sawtooth Function. Draw the graph of f ( x ) = x [ x ]....
