How rigorous does this need to be? For instance, are you suppose to use the epsilon-delta definitions? It is very easy to apply in this case:

For all , choose so that . So the limit is .

You can easily generalise this to arbitrary instead of . And by generalise I mean replace every instance of with and you'll get a valid proof.

The limit for b) is also two. You need minor modification to the proof above. For example, take to be the distance for (or ) to the nearest integer.

In light of parts a) and b), it should be obvious if and where the function is continuous. - April 17th 2013, 06:11 AMHallsofIvyRe: Limits and continuity
For x any number "close" to 3, but not equal to 3, x is NOT an integer so f(x)= 2. Therefore
