(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove that f(x) = 1/(x^2) is not continuous at x = 0 using the epsilon and delta definition of a limit

2. Relevant equations

definition of discontinuity

There exist epsilon > 0 such that for all delta > 0 there is an x such that |x-0| < delta but |1/(x^2)| >= Epsilon

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know how to go from here. Like how do i prove it? I don't understand!
