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
