    2. undefined

    3. 5

    4. -5

    5. none of the above

  2. Find if .

    1. undefined

    2. -14x

    3. 14x

    4. -14x - 9

    5. none of the above

  3. Find the x-values (if any) at which  is not continuous.

    1. f(x) is continuous for all real x.

    2. f(x) is not continuous at x = 0, –5 and both the discontinuities are nonremovable.

    3. f(x) is not continuous only at x = –5 and f(x) has a removable discontinuity at x = –5 .

    4. f(x) is not continuous only at x = 0 and f(x) has a removable discontinuity at x = 0 .

    5. f(x) is not continuous at x = 0, –5 and f(x) has a removable discontinuity at x = 0 .

  4. Find the x-values (if any) at which the function is not continuous. Which of the discontinuities are removable?

    1. no points of discontinuity.

    2. x = –10 (not removable), x = 3 (removable)

    3. x = –10 (removable), x = 3 (not removable)

    4. no points of continuity.

    5. x = –10 (not removable), x = 3 (not removable)

  5. Find the limit (if it exists).

    1. 1 / 14

    2. 0

    3. 1 / 98

    4. -1 / 14

    5. limits does not exist
