Unformatted text preview: the limit will equal the value of f(x) at a. These are called “wellbehaved” functions and are said to be “continuous” at a. Onesided Limits: ( ) lim x a f x L + → = means “the limit of the function f(x) as x approaches a from the right is L.” ( ) lim x a f x L→ = means “the limit of the function f(x) as x approaches a from the left is L.” Note: The ( ) lim x a f x L → = if and only if ( ) lim x a f x L + → = = ( ) lim x a f x L→ = .
