Raid Anabosi 1 of 4 Calculus I Ch.2 (2.2) Limit of a Function and Limit Laws Objectives 1. To use properties of limits to calculate limits. 2. To apply limit laws to find one-sided limits. 3. To use the squeeze (sandwich or pinching) theorem to evaluate limits. In this section, we use laws (or properties) to calculate the limit of a function rather than guessing it or estimating it. Example 1: Use the graphs of f & g in the given figure below to find (if exists!) a. 2 lim 5 x f x g x  b. 1 lim x f x g x c. 2 lim x f x g x

Case 1: if we get a real number L, then this number will be the limit. Case 2: if we get a non zero number over a zero (such as 2/0 ) we check the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
