Problem Set # 1, Solutions
1. Find the domain and sketch the graph of the function.
3x + |x|
When x = 0, G(x) has no definition; when x 6= 0, G(x) is well defined. So the domain of G is
(, 0) (0, ). The sketch of G is
y = G(x
Problem Set # 3, Solutions
1. Use the definition of continuity and the properties of limits to show that the function is continuous
at the given number a.
a = 4.
f (x) = x2 + 7 x,
a = 1.
f (t) =
1 + t3
Proof. (1), since limx4 7 x = 3
Problem Set # 3
1. (P91, #1.8.12, 1.8.14) Use the definition of continuity and the properties of limits to show that the
function is continuous at the given number a.

f (x) = x2 + 7 x,
f (t) =
a = 1.
