Section 2.2 Definition: lim f(x)=L if we can make tge values of f(x) arbitrarily close to L by taking x to be sufficiently close to a1 but not equal to a. Basically, x gets closer and closer to a1 f(x) gets closer and closer to L Notation: lim f(x)=L x→a Note: When evaluating the limit we don’t use x=a, in fact, f(x) can be undefined at a, but the limit can exist. Ex) Guess the value of the limit lim - - x 1x2 1 x→1 = lim x-1/(x-1)(x+1)=lim 1/x+1=1/2 Definition: lim → - = x a fx L if we can get f(x) arbitrarily close to L by taking values of x sufficiently close to but strictly less than a. Therom: lim = x afx L if and only if lim → - = x a fx lim → + ( )=

Any combo of a+ and a- as well as ∞ and -∞.
