Unformatted text preview: Picture on the board: Righthand limit: lim x a + f ( x ) = L As x approaches a from the right the associated f(x) values approach L. Right hand Limit: lim x af ( x ) = M As x approaches a from the left, the associated f(x) values approach M. Note: For the THE limit to exist the limit to exist at x=a, the left and right limit must be the same. Example #4 p.106 in the text Example: #6 p. 106 sketch the following piecewise defined graph and use your graph to determine for what values of a does the limit exist? Example: #24 p.107 The slope of the tangent line to the graph of the exponential function y = 2 x at the point (0,1) is lim x 2 x 1 x , (make sure you see how they got this) . Estimate this slope to 3 decimal places....
