Given function is
$f ( x) = 5 x -3$
$f(0) = 5(0)-3 = -3$
$\lim_{x\rightarrow 0} f(x) = 5(0)-3 = -3$
$\lim_{x\rightarrow 0} f(x) =f(0)$
Hence, function is continous at x = 0

$\dpi{100} f(-3)= 5(-3)-3=-15-3=-18\\\Rightarrow \lim_{x\rightarrow -3} f(x) = 5(-3)-3 = -15-3=-18\\\Rightarrow \lim_{x\rightarrow -3} f(x) = f(-3)$
Hence, function is continous at x = -3

$f(5)= 5(5)-3=25-3=22\\\Rightarrow \lim_{x\rightarrow 5} f(x) = 5(5)-3 = 25-3=-22\\ \Rightarrow \lim_{x\rightarrow 5} f(x) = f(5)$
Hence, fucnction is continous at x = 5
