# If a function has an undefined term at a point x, what does this tell us about the function?

I have a function f, and I have computed the first and second derivatives of it. The first and second derivative have terms x^4 $\sin \frac{1}{x}$ or similar. I am trying to show whether the function is differentiable at x=0, and i don't understand what to do with the $\sin \frac{1}{x}$ , since at x=0 this would be undefined. What does this say, if anything, about f?

This is in my maths homework, and I was instructed to compute the first and second derivatives, and say whether the function is differentiable at x=0. Im struggling because i'm not sure what the second derivative has to do with differentiability - my suspicion is nothing, and I base this on my understanding of what 'differentiable' means, but you never know.

I am reluctant to give the whole function since I want to understand the concept more than just the answer.
