Show that the function f (x) = |sin x + cos x|


Show that the function (x) = |sin + cos x| is continuous at = p. Examine the differentiability of f, where is defined by



f(x) = |sin x + cos x| at x = π

Now, put g(x) = sin x + cos x and h(x) = |x|

Hence, h[g(x)] = h(sin x + cos x) = |sin x + cos x|


g(x) = sin x + cos x is a continuous function since sin x and cos x are two continuous functions at x = π.

We know that, every modulus function is a common function is a continuous function everywhere.

Therefore, f(x) = |sin x + cos x| is continuous function at x = π.
