The function on the right, 1/(x+1), is not defined at x= 1, but it is defined at x=1, at the point (1, 0.5). So, these functions are equal, except for the point (1,0.5). That means that as x > 1, the y values of both are equal, and they are approaching the same limit, 0.5. Unbounded Title: Find Limit Analytically (5 of 6) Title: example w radicals (6 of 6) Summary: To Find a Limit 1. Substitute x = c a) If finite number, L, then the limit is L. b) If results in form, k / 0 , then f is unbounded and the limit DNE 2. If indeterminate, use algebra to find a function that is equivalent at all but the undefined point, and substitute again. 3. If still indeterminate, consider special limits: Title: To Find a Limit (1 of 1) ...
