My teacher gave me a chart to fill in that has X-Values that look like this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x

1

2

3

4

.

.

m - 2

m - 1

m

m + 1

m + 2

My question: What the heck is that m - 2 / m + 2 stuff?

Above the chart he gave me, it says:

"Examine the following functions for the set of x-values

{1,2,3,4,..., m - 2, m - 1, m, m + 1, m + 2,...}

I have absolutely no idea what "m" is.. Can someone please lend me a hand?
