24. Determine if f defined by
 f (x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} x^2 \sin 1/x & if x \neq 0 \\ 0 & if x = 0 \end{matrix}\right.
is a continuous function?

Given function is
f (x) = \left\{\begin{matrix} x^2 \sin 1/x & if x \neq 0 \\ 0 & if x = 0 \end{matrix}\right.
Given function is defined for all real numbers k
when x = 0
f(0) = 0\\ \lim_{x\rightarrow 0}f(x)=\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\left ( x^2\sin\frac{1}{x} \right )=\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\left ( \frac{x.\sin\frac{1}{x}}{\frac{1}{x}} \right ) = 0(1)=0 \ \ \ \ \ \ (\because\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{\sin x}{x} = 1)
\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}f(x) = f(0)
Hence, function is continuous at x = 0
when x \neq 0 
f(k) = k^2\sin \frac{1}{k}\\ \lim_{x\rightarrow k}f(x)=\lim_{x\rightarrow k}\left ( x^2\sin\frac{1}{x} \right )=k^2\sin \frac{1}{k}\\ \lim_{x\rightarrow k} = f(k)
Hence, the given function is continuous for all points
