We shall use the graph of the function y = f ( x ) below as an example throughout this note. We start by asking: Question . What happens to f ( x ) as x approaches 2 (from both sides and x n = 2)? Answer . As x approaches 2 from the left, we see that f ( x ) approaches 1. Also, as x approaches 2 from the right, f ( x ) approaches 1 also. Thus, the answer is: When x 2, we see that f ( x ) 1. De²nition . We have the following informal de²nition of a limit. If f ( x ) approaches a number L (and note that in²nity is not a number) when x approaches a number c (from both sides and x n = c ), we say that “the limit of
