    Yo, I need help with extended functions that is continuous at an indicated point.

    f(x)=((x^3)-1)/((x^2)-1), x=1

    $\displaystyle f(x) = \left\{ {\begin{array}{*{20}{rl}} {\frac{{{x^3} - 1}}{{{x^2} - 1}},}&{x \ne 1}\\ {\frac{3}{2},}&{x = 1} \end{array}} \right.$

    Well, for one thing I learned how to factor:

    $\displaystyle \dfrac{{{x^3} - 1}}{{{x^2} - 1}} = \dfrac{{(x - 1)({x^2} + x + 1)}}{{(x - 1)(x + 1)}} = \dfrac{{({x^2} + x + 1)}}{{(x + 1)}},~x \ne 1$
