Q.Show that the function f(x)=|x|+|x-1| is continuous for every value of x but is not differentiable at x=0 and x=1

A. I have checked the continuity, only need to check Lf'(0) and Rf'(0) and for x=1

Re: Differentiability

Correct.  Here's the graph: … )+abs(x-1)

So just show that the left and right limits are not the same.
