Okay, so in general, if I wanted to do a proof to show that some function f(x) is continuous for all x, how do i do that? I mean, general proofs of continuity are easy, but how do you prove it to be continuous for all x in a set?

Why do you think that there is anything vague about that method?
You suppose that $\displaystyle c\in S$ and show that $\displaystyle f$ is continious at $\displaystyle c$.
There is absolutely nothing vague about that.
Maybe you don't understand the definition of continuity. Is that it?
I guess general was more the word I was looking for. I understand the idea behind continuity: the limit as x approaches some point is the same as that function at some value, and alos how to formally work the definition. The book didn't give any examples of a prooof in which you'd prove continuity of a function in general.
