CHAPTER 2 LIMITS AND CONTINUITY 2.1 RATE OF CHANGE AND LIMITS 1. (a) Does not exist. As x approaches 1 from the right, g(x) approaches 0. As x approaches 1 from the left, g(x) approaches 1. There is no single number L that all the values g(x) get arbitrarily close to as x 1. Ä (b) 1 (c) 0 2. (a) 0 (b) 1 ± (c) Does not exist. As t approaches 0 from the left, f(t) approaches 1. As t approaches 0 from the right, f(t) ± approaches 1. There is no single number L that f(t) gets arbitrarily close to as t 0. Ä 3. (a) True (b) True (c) False (d) False (e) False (f) True 4. (a) False (b) False (c) True (d) True (e) True 5. lim does not exist because 1 if x 0 and 1 if x 0. As x approaches 0 from the left, x0 Ä xx x x x x x x kk œœ ² œ œ ± ³ ± approaches 1. As x approaches 0 from the right, approaches 1. There is no single number L that all ± the function values get arbitrarily close to as x 0. Ä 6. As x approaches 1 from the left, the values of become increasingly large and negative. As x approaches 1 " ± x1 from the right, the values become increasingly large and positive. There is no one number L that all the function values get arbitrarily close to as x 1, so does not exist. Ä Ä " ± 7. Nothing can be said about f(x) because the existence of a limit as x x does not depend on how the function Ä ! is defined at x . In order for a limit to exist, f(x) must be arbitrarily close to a single real number L when ! x is close enough to x . That is, the existence of a limit depends on the values of f(x) for x x , not on the ! ! near definition of f(x) at x itself. ! 8. Nothing can be said. In order for lim f(x) to exist, f(x) must close to a single value for x near 0 regardless of Ä the value f(0) itself. 9. No, the definition does not require that f be defined at x 1 in order for a limiting value to exist there. If f(1) œ is defined, it can be any real number, so we can conclude nothing about f(1) from lim f(x) 5. Ä œ 10. No, because the existence of a limit depends on the values of f(x) when x is near 1, not on f(1) itself. If lim f(x) exists, its value may be some number other than f(1) 5. We can conclude nothing about lim f(x), Ä Ä œ whether it exists or what its value is if it does exist, from knowing the value of f(1) alone.
