If f(x)4 becomes arbitrarily small when x is any number sufficiently close to c (not equal) We write: Lim f(x) =L We say f(x) converges to L as x >c Ex. Lim (x:>2) 2x+3 = 7 Absolute value of f(x) L = absolute value of 2x+3 7 = absolute value of 2x4 = 2 times the absolute value of x2 Since absolute value of f(x) L is a multiple of the absolute value of x2, Absolute value of f(x) L become arbitrary small as x is close to 2. Theorem a) lim x>2 k=k b) lim x>c x= c ex. Lim x>0 e ^(1/x^2) = 0 x F(x) + 1 e ^1 +0.1 e ^100 +0.01 Example 1 (limit equals function value) F(x)= x Lim (x>4) x = 2...
