f(x)= 1/q if x is rational
and then i don't know what to do if f(x) is irrational.
I know that I am looking for a function that will be discontinuous and therefore nondifferentiable on at non-integer values.
Since I want it to be differentiable on the integers, I want my function to be continuous at the integers.
I know these things, but I cannot seem to connect the dots and it's driving me insane. Please help!
