Find s Let f ( x ) = ( x 2 - 1)/( x - 1) . s We can’t find the limit by substituting x = 1 because f (1) isn’t defined. s We can’t apply the Quotient Law because the limit of the denominator is 0. s Instead, we need to do some preliminary algebra. 2 1 1 lim . 1 x x x - - USING THE LIMIT LAWS Example 3 (2.3)

Evaluate s If we define , then, we can’t compute by letting h = 0 since F (0) is undefined. s However, if we simplify F (h) algebraically, we find that: 2 0 (3 ) 9 lim . h h h + - USING THE LIMIT LAWS Example 5 (2.3) 2 (3 ) 9 ( ) h F h h + - = 0 lim ( ) h F h
