    Another continuity question

    The question:
    The function f(x) = \frac{x - 2}{x^2 - 3x + 2} is not defined for x = 2. Find a value to be given to f(2) that will make f continuous at 2.

    I'm not sure what this question is asking of me. Perhaps it's how it's worded, but I'm completely stumped. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    f(x)=\dfrac{(x-2)}{(x-2)(x-1)}

    Aha! I still think the question was worded badly, but at least I know how to attempt them now. Thanks.
