I'm bad at problems like this. Help?
lol

Basically

The limit of F(X) when x-->0- <> limit of F(X) when x-->0+
-1 <> 1

but F(X)^2 = G(X) becomes

G(X) = (1 if x= 0 , x^2/X^2 = 1 when X<>0) so basically 1 across all values of x therefore continuous.

Hope this helps



Back on topic.. People go to Osheaga for music, not fashion statements.
