f:[-1,1] -> R is defined as .......| 1/ln(x) , x not equal be 0 f(x)={ .......| 0, x=0 how do i show this is continious??? thankz

Maybe you mean: Now it is continuous.

Still no good you should have mentioned the open interval Anyway, the way you show continuity is to show that, Since, open some open interval except possibly at we have, Which is true if we consider the left-right limits, And by using L'Hopital's Rule.
