How did c cubed equal three?  

Continuity and the Intermediate Value Theorem

  • Look for places at which the function is not continuous: removable discontinuities, jump discontinuities, and infinite discontinuities.
  • Also look for places where the function is not even defined – these are discontinuities as well!
  • If you are using the Intermediate Value Theorem, do check that the function is continuous on the interval involved!
  • If a problem asks you to verify a conclusion of the Intermediate Value Theorem, use algebra to do so.
