# What is RHD and LHD explain with a n example.

RHD stands for Right hand derivative and LHD for left hand derivative, they are also known as right hand limit and left hand limit ,
Here is an example,

The given function f is

It is known that a function f is differentiable at a point x = c in its domain if both

are finite and equal.

To check the differentiability of the given function at x = 1, consider the left hand limit of f at x = 1

Since the left and right hand limits of f at x = 1 are not equal, f is not differentiable at

x = 1

To check the differentiability of the given function at x = 2, consider the left hand limit

of f at x = 2

Since the left and right hand limits of f at x = 2 are not equal, f is not differentiable at x = 2
