Problem 3.5

I have questions about this problem. What I get after analyzing is the following:

The last line follows because:
(since )

From this, I cannot see how is not continuous at . Instead I find that it is not continuous nor differentiable for 's such that .

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Problem 3.5

There are 3 cases:

in which case , which is differentiable.

in which case , which is differentiable.

in which case , but is not differentiable because the derivative is 0 or not depending on whether approaches 1 from above or below.
