To get an idea of the behavior of the graph of f near x = c, you can use 2 sets of x-values –one set that approaches c from the left and another set that approaches c from the right.

Common Types of Behavior Associated with the Nonexistence of a Limit 1. f(x) approaches a different number from the right side of c than it approaches from the left side. 2. f(x) increases or decreases without bound as x approaches c . 3. f(x) oscillates between 2 fixed values as x approaches c.

### What students are saying

• 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.
