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
