1.D. Limits and Continuity

In mathematics, the term continuous has much the same meaning as it has in everyday usage. Informally, to say that a function is continuous at x=c means that there is no interruption in the graph of f at c. That is, its graph is unbroken at and there are no holes, jumps, or gaps.

This section delves into how this definition of continuity is related to limits.
