## Chapter 5 - Continuity and Differentiability Exercise Ex. 5.1

The given function is f(x) = 5x - 3

At x = 0, f(0) = 5 × 0 - 3 = -3

The given function is f(x) = x^{2} - sinx + 5

It is evident that f is defined at x = ∏

The given function f is continuous at x = , if f is defined at x = and if the value

of f at x = equals the limit of f at x =

Rolle's theorem states that there is a point c (-4, -2) such that f'(c) = 0

then there exists some c (a, b) such that f'(c) = 0

Let n be an integer such that n (5, 9).

Let n be an integer such that n (-2, 2).

Therefore, by the Mean Value Theorem, there exists c (-5, 5) such that

Mean Value Theorem states that there is a point c (1, 4) such that f'(c) = 1

## Chapter 5 - Continuity and Differentiability Exercise Misc. Ex.

where sin x > cosx

Yes.

Consider the function f(x)=|x-1|+|x-2|

Since we know that the modulus function is continuous everywhere, so there sum is also continuous

Therefore, function f is continuous everywhere

Now, let us check the differentiability of f(x) at x=1,2

At x=1

LHD =

[Take x=1-h, h>0 such that h→0 as x→1^{-}]

Now,

RHD =

[Take x=1+h, h>0 such that h→0 as x→1^{+}]

≠ LHD

Therefore, f is not differentiable at x=1.

At x=2

LHD =

[Take x=2-h, h>0 such that h→0 as x→2^{-}]

Now,

RHD =

[Take x=2+h, h>0 such that h→0 as x→2^{+}]

≠ LHD

Therefore, f is not differentiable at x=2.

Hence, f is not differentiable at exactly two points.
