Objectives: Compute limits using limit laws.

The limit laws state that if lim x c f(x) and lim x c g(x) both exist, then ( proofs are on page A18 of the appendix ) 1. lim x c (f(x) + g(x)) = lim x c f(x) + lim x c g(x) 2. lim x c kf(x) = klim x c f(x) 3. lim x c (f(x)·g(x)) = lim x c f(x)·lim x c g(x) 4. If lim x c g(x) h 0, then ) ( lim ) ( lim ) ( ) ( lim x g x f x g x f c x c x c x =

Unformatted text preview: We can use the facts lim x c x = c and lim x c k = k and the previous limit laws to evaluate some simple limits.
