    Determining Points of a Func. That are Continuous

    Given the functions below, determine all the points where the function given is continuous.

    1.) f(x,y,z) = (x^3)/(y) + sin(z)

    2.) Note: this function is a piecewise function:

    Code:
    f(x,y) = cos(1/(x^2 + y^2)), if (x,y) =! (0,0)
                 1,              if (x,y) = (0,0)
    Also note that =! means "does not equal"

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This is some combination of those standard (elementary) functions. Thus, the "bad" points are the undefined points.
    In this case it is y=0.

    Thus,
    S={(x,y,z)| such that y ! = 0}
