Solutions

Chapter 2, Problem 24RE

(a)

To determine

To find:That the given function is continuous on its domain and state the domain.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 24RE

The given function is continuous on its domain (,3][3,) .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given function is g(x)=x29x22 .

Calculation:

The equation x29 is a polynomial, therefore is continuous on (,) .

And, x is continuous on [0,] .

If g is continuous at a and f is continuous at g(a) , then the composite function fog given by (fog)(x)=f(g(x)) is continuous at a .

The composition x29 is continuous on {x|x290}=(,3][3,) .

  1x22 is continuous when x2 and x2 .

If f and g are continuous at a , then f/g is also continuous at a .

The function g(x)=x29x22 is continuous on its domain (,3][3,) .

Therefore, the given function is continuous on its domain (,3][3,) .

(b)

To determine

To find:That the given function is continuous on its domain and state the domain.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 24RE

The given function is continuous on its domain (,) .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given function is h(x)=xesinx .

Calculation:

  x is a polynomial, therefore is continuous on (,) .

And, sinx is a trigonometric function, therefore is continuous on (,) .

And, ex is aexponential function, therefore is continuous on (,) .

If g is continuous at a and f is continuous at g(a) , then the composite function fog given by (fog)(x)=f(g(x)) is continuous at a .

If f and g are continuous at a , then fg is also continuous at a .

The function h(x)=xesinx is continuous on its domain (,) .

Therefore, the given function is continuous on its domain (,) .
