Deﬁne f (1) = 2 and redeﬁne g (1) = 1. f is undeﬁned at x = ±2; at x = 2, lim f (x) = 1, so deﬁne f (2) = 1 and f becomes continuous x→0 x→0 x→−3 x→2 there; at x = −2, lim does not exist, so the discontinuity is not removable x→−2 1 1 x+2 = , so deﬁne f (2) = and f becomes x2 + 2x + 4 3 3 (a) f is not deﬁned at x = 2; lim f (x) = lim (b) 28. continuous there lim− f (x) = 1 = 4 = lim+ f (x), so f has a nonremovable discontinuity at x = 2 (c) 29.

Chapter 2 (a) there appears to be one discontinuity near x = −1.52 (b) one discontinuity at x = −1.52 4 -3 3 –4 31. For x &gt; 0, f (x) = x3/5 = (x3 )1/5 is the composition (Theorem 2.4.6) of the two continuous functions g (x) = x3 and h(x) = x1/5 and is thus continuous. For x &lt; 0, f (x) = f (−x) which is the composition of the continuous functions f (x) (for positive x) and the continuous function y = −x. Hence f (−x) is continuous for all x &gt; 0. At x = 0, f (0) = lim f (x) = 0. x→0 32. x4 + 7x2 + 1 ≥ 1 &gt; 0, thus f (x) is the composition of the polynomial x4 + 7x2 + 1, the square root √ x, and the function 1/x and is therefore continuous by Theorem 2.4.6. 33. (a) Let f (x) = k for x = c and f (c) = 0; g (x) = l for x = c and g (c) = 0. If k = −l then f + g is continuous; otherwise it’s not. (b) f (x) = k for x = c, f (c) = 1; g (x) = l = 0 for x = c, g (c) = 1. If kl = 1, then f g is continuous; otherwise it is not. 34. A rational function is the quotient f (x)/g (x) of two polynomials f (x) and g (x). By Theorem 2.4.2 f and g are continuous everywhere; by Theorem 2.4.3 f /g is continuous except when g (x) = 0. 35. Since f and g are continuous at x = c we know that lim f (x) = f (c) and lim g (x) = g (c). In the x→c x→c following we use Theorem 2.2.2. (a) f (c) + g (c) = lim f (x) + lim g (x) = lim(f (x) + g (x)) so f + g is continuous at x = c. x→c x→c x→c (b) same as (a) except the + sign becomes a − sign (c) lim f (x) f f (c) f (x) = x→c = lim so is continuous at x = c x→c g (x) g (c) lim g (x) g x→c 36. h(x) = f (x) − g (x) satisﬁes h(a) &gt; 0, h(b) &lt; 0. Use the Intermediate Value Theorem or Theorem 2.4.9. 37. Of course such a function must be discontinuous. Let f (x) = 1 on 0 ≤ x &lt; 1, and f (x) = −1 on 1 ≤ x ≤ 2. 38. A square whose diagonal has length r has area f (r) = r2 /2. Note that f (r) = r2 /2 &lt; πr2 /2 &lt; 2r2 = f (2r). By the Intermediate Value Theorem there must be a value c between r and 2r such that f (c) = πr2 /2, i.e. a square of diagonal c whose area is πr2 /2. 39. The cone has volume πr2 h/3. The function V (r) = πr2 h (for variable r and ﬁxed h) gives the volume of a right circular cylinder of height h and radius r, and satisﬁes V (0) &lt; πr2 h/3 &lt; V (r). By the Intermediate Value Theorem there is a value c between 0 and r such that V (c) = πr2 h/3, so the cylinder of radius c (and height h) has volume equal to that of the cone. 40. If f (x) = x3 − 4x + 1 then f (0) = 1, f (1) = −2. Use Theorem 2.4.9. 41. If f (x) = x3 + x2 − 2x then f (−1) = 2, f (1) = 0. Use the Intermediate Value Theorem. Exercise Set 2.4 42....
