1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Let p and q be a polynomial and x0 be a zero of q of multiplicity m. Prove that p/q can be assigned a value at x0 such that the function thus defined will be continuous there iff x0 is a zero of p of multiplicity greater than or equal to m. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not quite sure how to even get started. This question just confuses me in what it's asking.
