continuous function
A function whose value does not suddenly jump as the variable increases or decreases smoothly. Geometrically speaking, a continuous function is one that you can draw without lifting your pencil from the paper. More precisely, a function f(x) is continuous if it is continuous at every point in its domain, and it is continuous at a specific point x = b if the limit of f(x) as x approaches b is f(b).
