Math 9A Section 4.4 Limit Set Infinity Definition: Let f be a function defined on some interval (a, ∞) lim →∞ = x fx L if the values of f(x) can be made arbitrarily close to L by taking x to be sufficiently large. Definition: The limit y=L is a HORIZONTAL ASYMPTOTE of f(x) if either lim →∞ = x fx L or lim →-∞ = x fx L . Theorem: If r 0 is rational, then ˃ lim →∞ = x 1xr 0 . If r 0 is rational such that ˃ xr is defined for all x, then lim →-∞ = x 1xr 0 . Example: lim →∞ - - + + = - - + + = - - + + = x 3x2 x 25x2 4x 1x2x2 3 1x 2x25 4x 1x2 3 0 05 0 0 35
