Right hand limit : ( ) lim x a f x L + fi = . This has the same definition as the limit except it requires x a > . Left hand limit : ( ) lim x a f x L - fi = . This has the same definition as the limit except it requires x a < . Limit at Infinity : We say ( ) lim x f x L fi¥ = if we can make ( ) f x as close to L as we want by taking x large enough and positive. There is a similar definition for ( ) lim x f x L fi-¥ = except we require x large and negative. Infinite Limit : We say ( ) lim x a f x fi = ¥ if we can make ( ) f x arbitrarily large (and positive) by taking x sufficiently close to a (on either side of a ) without letting x a = . There is a similar definition for ( ) lim x a f x fi = -¥ except we make ( ) f x arbitrarily large and negative.

If 0 r > and r x is real for negative x then lim 0 r x b x fi-¥ = 5. n even : lim n x x fi–¥ = ¥ 6. n odd : lim n x x fi¥ = ¥ & lim n x x fi- ¥ = -¥ 7. n even : ( ) lim sgn n x a x b x c a fi–¥ + + + = ¥ L 8. n odd : ( ) lim sgn n x a x b x c a fi¥ + + + = ¥ L 9. n odd : ( ) lim sgn n x a x c x d a fi-¥ + + + = - ¥ L Calculus Cheat Sheet Visit http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu for a complete set of Calculus notes. © 2005 Paul Dawkins Evaluation Techniques Continuous Functions If ( ) f x is continuous at a then ( ) ( ) lim x a f x f a fi = Continuous Functions and Composition ( ) f x is continuous at b and ( ) lim x a g x b fi = then ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) lim lim x a x a f g x f g x f b fi fi = = Factor and Cancel ( )( ) ( ) 2 2 2 2 2 2 6 4 12 lim lim 2 2 6 8 lim 4 2 x x x x x x x x x x x x x fi fi fi - + + - = - - + = = = Rationalize Numerator/Denominator ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( )( ) 2 2 9 9 2 9 9 3 3 3 lim lim 81 81 3 9 1 lim lim 81 3 9 3 1 1 18 6 108 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x fi fi fi fi - - + = - - + - - = = - + + + - = = - Combine Rational Expressions ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 0 0 2 0 0 1 1 1 1 lim lim 1 1 1 lim lim h h h h x x h h x h x h x x h h h x x h x x h x fi fi fi fi ± ² - + ± ² - = ³ ´ ³ ´ ³ ´ + + L l L l ± ² - - = = = - ³ ´ ³ ´ + + L l L’Hospital’s Rule If ( ) ( ) 0 lim 0 x
