# Is the function defined by

a continuous function?

Answer :

The given function is

The function f is defined at all points of the real line.

Let k be the point on a real line.

Then, we have 3 cases i.e., k < 1, or k = 1 or k > 1

Now,

__Case I:__ k < 1

Then, f(k) = k + 5

= k + 5 = f(k)

Thus,

Hence, f is continuous at all real number less than 1.

__Case II:__ k = 1

Then, f(k) = f(1) = 1 + 5 = 6

= 1 + 5 = 6

= 1 - 5 = -4

Hence, f is not continuous at x = 1.

__Case III:__ k > 1

Then, f(k) = k -5

= k - 5

Thus,

Hence, f is continuous at all real number greater than 1.

Therefore, x = 1 is the only point of discontinuity of f.
