At the end of this lesson, the students are expected to perform the following: define limits illustrate limits and its theorems evaluate limits applying the given theorems

Consider the function Note that the given function is not defined at x = 1 since at this point f(x) has the form 0/0 which is meaningless or indeterminate. But what will happen to f(x) as x approaches 1, or is f(x) approaching some specific values as x approaches 1? - = - 3 1 ( ) 1 x f x x

From the illustration, we arrived at the conclusion that “f(x) approaches 3 as x approaches 1” . In symbol we write: 3 1 1 lim 3 1 x x x - = - read as “the limit of as x approaches 1 is 3.” x 3 - 1 x - 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
