Continuity and Differentiability
• A function ‘f’ is said to be continuous at x = a iff ‘f’ is defined in some neighborhood of ‘a’ and limit of f(x) when x tends to ‘a’ is equal to f(a).
• Let f be real valued continuous function
- A function f(x) is differentiable at a point x = c, if its left hand derivative as well as right hand derivative exists finitely and are equal.
- The derivative of the function y = f(x) at any point x = c represents the slope of the tangent to the curve. So, slope of the tangent
- The function whose values are found from two given functions by applying one function to an independent variable and then applying the second function to the result.
- If we have two functions u(x) and v(x), we can define a composite function
- w(x) = (u o v) (x) = u(v(x
- The derivatives of the inverse trigonometric functions are actually algebraic functions.

- The function y = f(x) = ax is called the exponential function with positive base, or a >1.
- The domain of an exponential function is the set of all real numbers.
- The range of the exponential function is the set of all positive real numbers.

If the limits of f(x) and g(x) are equal to 0, as x tends to a, then f(x)/ g(x) is said to assume indeterminate form 0/0.
Some other indeterminate forms are ∞/∞, ∞ - ∞, 0×∞, 00, 1∞ and ∞0.
