QSRP - Chapter 10 3 Vineet Goyal Continuity Limits Derivative Rules Log.,Exp. Functions Implicit Differentiation Limits Definition (pg. 450 of text) The limit of f(x) as x approaches a is the number L, provided that f(x) is arbitrarily close to L for all x sufficiently close to , but not equal to a. Example Walk from A to B covering half the distance at each step Example when limit (as x -> a) is not defined (case) A B

QSRP - Chapter 10 5 Vineet Goyal Continuity Limits Derivative Rules Log.,Exp. Functions Implicit Differentiation Continuity Defn: A function f is continuous at a iff (i) f(x) defined at x = a (ii) lim x->a f(x) exists and is equal to f(a) Example Figures 10.23, 10.24, pg. 466 of text Polynomial functions are continuous at every point
