(Section 2.1: An Introduction to Limits) 2.1.5 Be prepared to work with function and variable names other than f and x . Example 4 (Revisiting Example 2) Assuming gt () = 2 t + 1 t ± 2 , evaluate lim t ± 3 . Solution lim t ± 3 = lim t ± 3 2 t + 1 t ² 2 = 23 + 1 3 ² 2 = 7 PART B: ONE- AND TWO-SIDED LIMITS; EXISTENCE OF LIMITS The limit problems of the form lim x ± a fx in Part A were two-sided limit problems, because we were interested in what happened when we approached x = a from both sides: from the left and from the right. One-sided limit problems only focus on one of these approaches.
