Calculus Cheat Sheet Visit http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu for a complete set of Calculus notes. © 2005 Paul Dawkins Limits Definitions Precise Definition : We say ( ) lim x a f x L fi = if for every 0 e > there is a 0 d > such that whenever 0 x a d < - < then ( ) f x L e - < . “Working” Definition : We say ( ) lim x a f x L fi = if we can make ( ) f x as close to L as we want by taking x sufficiently close to a (on either side of a ) without letting x a = . Right hand limit : ( ) lim x a f x L + fi = . This has the same definition as the limit except it requires x a > . Left hand limit : ( ) lim x a f x L - fi = . This has the same definition as the limit except it requires x a < . Limit at Infinity : We say ( ) lim x f x L fi¥ = if we can make ( ) f x as close to L as we want by taking x large enough and positive. There is a similar definition for ( ) lim x f x L fi-¥ = except we require x large and negative. Infinite Limit : We say ( ) lim x a f x fi = ¥ if we can make ( ) f x arbitrarily large (and positive) by taking x sufficiently close to a (on either side of a ) without letting x a = .

### 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.
