## Question:

Is the function {eq}h(x)=\left\{\begin{matrix} 3x+2 & \mathrm{for}\;x<4\\ 18-x & \mathrm{for}\; x > 4 \end{matrix}\right. {/eq} continuous at the point {eq}x = 4 {/eq}?

## Continuous function:

A trivial definition of a continuous function is that If the graph that defines the function can be traced without lifting the finger from the paper, that is, if the function can be traced with a single stroke, then it is continuous.
