Your friends Rita and Richard are arguing. Rita claims that closed-form functions cannot have points of discontinuity, but Richard retorts, “Ever heard of f ( x ) = 1 / x ?” On whose side (if any) of the argument should you be? Explain.

To determine

Whether the statements of Rita or Richard is correct, if Rita is arguing that closed-form function cannot have any points of discontinuity and Richard mention an example f(x)=1x.

Explanation

Given Information:

Rita is arguing that closed-form function cannot have any points of discontinuity and Richard mention an example f(x)=1x.

According to Rita, closed-form functions are continuous everywhere in its domain. There is no point where the function can discontinuous in its domain.

Discontinuous points are those points where the closed-form function is not continuous.

Consider the example of the function at which the function is not discontinuous at any point
