Outline 1 Introduction to Limits 2 Properties of Limits Albert Ku (HKUST) MATH 006 2 / 13
Introduction to Limits Limits Example Graph the function f ( x ) = x 2 - 1 x + 1 . Then ﬁnd out how f ( x ) behaves as x tends to, but not equal to - 1. Albert Ku (HKUST) MATH 006 3 / 13

Introduction to Limits Remarks As x gets close to - 1, f ( x ) gets close to - 2. We say that the limit of f ( x ) is - 2 as x tends to - 1. Notice that f ( x ) is undeﬁned when x = - 1. The limit of f ( x ) as x tends to - 1 is well-deﬁned even when f ( x ) is undeﬁned at - 1. In fact, the value of f at - 1 does not aﬀect the limit. Albert Ku (HKUST) MATH 006 4 / 13
Introduction to Limits Deﬁnition of the Limit of a Function Deﬁnition We write lim x c f ( x ) = L or f ( x ) L as x c if f ( x ) is close to the single real number L when x tends to, but not equal to c . Remarks
