  • If $f$ is a real function on a subset of the real numbers and $c$ a point in the domain of $f$, then $f$ is continous at $c$ if $\lim\limits_{x\to c} f(x) = f(c)$.
  • Sum, difference, product and quotient of any continuous functions is continous also.
Step 1:
At $x=5$
$\quad\quad\quad\quad\;\;\;=$Not defined.
Step 2:
When $x\neq 5\lim\limits_{\large x\to c}f(x)=\lim\limits_{\large x\to c}\large\frac{1}{x-5}=\frac{1}{c-5}$
$f$ is continuous at $x\in R-\{5\}$
