12.2 Limits and Continuity R 2 : lim x c f ( x ) = L means that if x is “close” to c, then f(x) is “close” to L. Def: lim x c f ( x ) = L ↔ ∀ ε > 0, δ > 0 such that if x c < δ then f ( x ) L < ε R 3 : lim ( x , y ) ( a , b ) f ( x , y ) = L ↔ ∀ ε > 0, δ > 0 such that if 0 < x a ( ) 2 + y b ( ) 2 < δ then f ( x , y ) L < ε

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
