For which values of
t
is
P
(
t
)
diﬀerentiable
Solution:
At
t
= 2:
Continuity:
lim
t

-
t
+4=6
and
lim
t
2
+
t
2
-
3
t
+8=6
and
P
(2) = 6
.
Hence
P
(
t
) is continuous at
t
= 2.
Diﬀerentiability: The function
g
(
t
)=
t
+ 4 satisﬁes
g
0
(
t
) = 1 and hence
g
0
(2) = 1.
Similarly, it
h
(
t
)=
t

-
3
t
+ 8 satisﬁes
h

(
t
)=2
t
-
3 and
h

(2) = 1.
So
lim
t
2
-
P
0
(
t
) = 1 = lim
t
2+
P
0
(
t
)
.
Hence
P
(
t
) is diﬀerentiable at
t
= 2 (with
P
0
(2) = 1).
At
t
= 3:
Continuity:
lim
t

-
t

-

t

and
lim
t
3
+
1

(
t

+ 44) =

6
=8
.
Hence
P
(
t
) is not continuous at
t
= 3 and therefore not diﬀerentiable at
t
= 3.
All the functions (polynomials) involved in the formula of
P
(
t
) are diﬀerentiable on the
domains assigned to them.
Hence
P
(
t
) is diﬀerentiable for all
t
6
= 3.
The function
P
(
t
) is diﬀerentiable for the following values of
t
: all
t
6
= 3.
