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
