how do you prove that the unction f(x) = tan(x+x^2)/(1+x+x^2) is continuous for all x=[0,1] except at one point.

i found out that it is not cont at x= 0.84936..but i dont know how to prove that it is continuous now..

The function has a singularity for so that Your function has a singularity for x satisfying the equation . One solution is

Kind regards

haha ya i knew that it is not continuous at x= 0.84936.. as stated in my question..so, im trying to ask how do i show that it is continuous for all points other than x= 0.84936..

The function:

is an elementary function, for all real and does not exists. Solving you'll obtain the point in where is not continuous:

For example:

**(i)**is continuous in (polynomical function).

**(ii)**is continuous in (polynomical function).

**(iii)**is continuous in

**(iv)**Composition of continuous are continuous.

etc. etc., ...
