1) Consider f(x) = $|x|^{3/2}$ Check for Differentiability and Continuity. I am getting Cont and Differentiable both. 2) Consider f(x) = $|x-1|^{3/2}$ Check for Differentiability and Continuity. I am getting Cont and Differentiable both. 3) Find the value of $f(x) = \int_{-2}^{2}|1-x^4|dx$. I am getting 8/5, but answer is 12.
