1. ## Calculus Help

I'm asked to list the conditions where a function would not be differentiable, graph them and also explain why they are not differentiable. Can anyone point me in the righth direction.

Corner, discontinuity, and vertical tangent

n/m again now i'm having trouble finding the reason why they cannot be differentiable. Any help is appreciated

A point is continuous if you can find the limiting value of the function as x approaches that point. In the situation of a cusp, it is continuous, but the definition of the derivative does not hold. The following example shows the absence of a derivative for $f(x)=|x|$ at $x=0$
$lim_{h \rightarrow 0} \frac{f(x+h) - f(x)}{h} = \frac{|h|}{h} \Rightarrow \frac{0}{0} ~ DNE$
