In Problems 3-8, determine whether each function is continuous or discontinuous at the given x-value. Examine the three conditions in the definition of continuity. f ( x ) = x 2 − 6 x + 8 x 2 + x − 20 , x = 4

To determine

Whether the function, f(x)=x26x+8x2+x20, is continuous or discontinuous at x=4.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x)=x26x+8x2+x20.

Explanation:

Consider the provided function,

f(x)=x26x+8x2+x20

A function, f, is continuous at x=c if f(c) exists, limxcf(x) exists and limxcf(x)=f(c).

The function is continuous at x=4 if all the three conditions are satisfied for x=4
