Unformatted text preview: Math 2224 Multivariable Calc Sec. 12.2: Limits and Continuity in Higher Dimensions I. Review from math 1205 A. Limits 1. Def n : Let f be a fn defined on some open interval that contains the number a , except possibly at a itself. Then we say that the limit of f(x) as x approaches a is L , and we write lim x ! a f x ( ) = L if for every number >0 there is a corresponding number >0 such that | f(x)-L |< whenever 0<| x-a |< Another way of writing the last line of this def n is: if 0<| x-a |< then | f(x)-L |< 2. Th m : lim x ! a f x ( ) =L iff lim x ! a- f x ( ) = lim x ! a + f x ( ) =L, where a , L are real numbers. 3. Some of the Limit laws Let f and g be any 2 functions st lim x ! a f x ( ) = L and lim x ! a g x ( ) = M and suppose that c is a constant. Then a. Sum/Difference Rule: lim x ! a f x ( ) g x ( ) " # $ % = lim x ! a f x ( ) lim x ! a g x ( ) = L M b. Constant Multiple: lim x ! a c f x ( ) " # $ % = c lim x ! a f x ( ) = cL c. Product Rule:...
