In Exercises 25–32, use a graph of f or some other method to determine what, if any, value to assign to f ( a ) to make f continuous at x = a . [HINT: See Example 2.] f ( x ) = x 3 x 2 − x ; a = 0

To determine

To calculate: The value that is assign to f(a) such that to make the function f(x)=x3x2x continuous at a=0 by using the graph of f(x).

Explanation

Given information:

The provided function is f(x)=x3x2x.

Calculation:

Consider the function, f(x)=x3x2x

To draw the graph of f(x)=x3x2x, first compute the value of f(x) for different values of x.

Compute the value of f(x) at x=2 by substituting x=2 in the equation f(x)=x3x2x as, f(2)=23(2)22=2122=15

Compute the value of f(x) at x=3 by substituting x=3 in the equation f(x)=x3x2x as, f(3)=33(3)23=3273=18

Compute the value of f(x) at x=2 by substituting x=2 in the equation f(x)=x3x2x as, f(2)=23(2)2(2)=212+2=17

Compute the value of f(x) at x=1 by substituting x=1 in the equation f(x)=x3x2x
