To find the x values at which f(x) = x/(x^2-1) is not continuous, we need to identify the points where the function is undefined or where the limit does not exist.

The function f(x) is undefined when the denominator, x^2-1, equals zero. Solving x^2-1=0, we find x=1 and x=-1. Therefore, the function is not continuous at x=1 and x=-1.

To determine if these discontinuities are removable, we need to check if the limit of f(x) exists as x approaches these points.

Taking the limit as x approaches 1, we find that the limit is 1/2. Therefore, the discontinuity at x=1 is removable.

Taking the limit as x approaches -1, we find that the limit is also 1/2. Therefore, the discontinuity at x=-1 is removable as well.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
