\[x\in \Re\] \[ \\ f\left( x \right) =x+x+x+......x\quad \quad (x\quad times)\\\] \[Then\quad first\quad derivative\quad of\quad f\left( x \right) \quad will\quad be\quad x\quad or\quad 2x?\] The confusion arrived due to a problem similar to it.

TopNewesty=x is a continuous function. Thus, y=x+x+x+....x will also be a continuous function for all x belongs to real. – Abhijeet Verma · 2 years, 3 months ago

Is \(x\) an integer? If not then the expression \( x^2 = x+ x+ \dots \dots x \text{ times } \) doesn't make sense. – Sudeep Salgia · 2 years, 3 months ago

If we don't restrict x to integers ,then ? (Addition of continuous functions should yield a continuous function )Log in to reply

If x is an integer then function won't be continuous hence Differentiating it would be meaningless.Log in to reply

But x doesn't only belong to integers. \[x\quad \in \quad \Re \]Log in to reply

Then how can you write \(x^2\) 'x' times x when x is not integer?Log in to reply

– Abhijeet Verma · 2 years, 3 months ago

Yeah , adding x times x itself implies that x has to be a whole number. Thus its differentiation would have no meaning.Thanks and sryLog in to reply

Try writing down the function for \( x = 2.5 \).Log in to reply
