f(x)=[x]+[-x] when xis not equal to 2 and A ,when X =2 if fx is continuous at x=2 thwn the value of A=?

Answers : (2)


Hi Koushik,


Ih you note

f(x) as x tends to 2 from the right ie 2+

f(2+) = 2-3 = -1

And f(x) as x tends to 2 from the left ie 2-

f(2-) = 1-2 = -1.


So f(2) = A = -1 for f(x) to be continuous at 2.


Hope it helps.

Wish you all the best.

For continuity lim x->2+ f(x) = f(2) = lim x-> 2-

Evalutaing left hand limit: 

When x->2-: [x]+[-x] = [2-h]+[-(2-h)] =1+[-2+h]=1-2=-1

Evaluating right hand limit

When x->2+ : [2+h]+[-2-h]= 2+(-3)= -1 

therefore f(2) = -1 to mk the function continuous

Q. F( x + 2y, x – 2y) = xy , then F(X,Y) EQUALS- x 2 - y 2 /8 x 2 – y 2 /4 x 2 + y 2 /4 x 2 – y 2 /2
Ans: x 2 - y 2 /8 if, F(xy) = x 2 – y 2 /8, then F( x + 2y, x – 2y) = ( x+2y) 2 – (x-2y) 2 /8 = 4*x*2y/8 = xy Hence ans is x 2 - y 2 /8

is there any formula for finding pt. of intersection between: ax+by+c=0 bx+ay+c=0
Yes, you can apply cross multiplication method(similar to solving determinants). In this eqns, x = -y = 1 . Hence, x=y= -c bc-ac ac-bc a 2 -b2 a+b

how you can say that they intersect at y=x , its for sure that they are symmmetric but i think its only a special case that they intersect at y=x.

i think that there is a better way , we see that when we replace x with y in any eqn. we get the other one which means that the st. line intersect at y=x line as they are symmeteric about...
