If the function f(x) = —— Were continuous at 0, then it would be simple to compute
x the limit at 0; we would just substitute x = 0. However, since the denominator is x,‘
f (x) is not even defined at x = 0. We investigate this limit numerically and graphically. iimit Nim‘ierit‘ally limit Grapi'iieally YA

that polynomials such as x2 — 3x + 2 are continuous for all
values of x. When we restrict x to values for which x2 — 3x + 2 is nonnegative, it follows from Principle C5 that sz — 3x + 2 is continuous. Since x2 — 3x + 2 is

2092 505mm By the Continuity Principles, we know that x2 — 4 is continuous. There

X'ﬁ Using the fact that many of the usual functions from algebra and trigonome

change (speed) is 110 mi/Z hr, or 55 mi/hr (55 mph). On the
other hand, suppose that you are on the freeway and you
begin accelerating. Glancing at the speedometer, you see that
at that instant your instantaneous rate of change is 55 mph.
These are two quite different concepts. The first you are prob— ably familiar with. The second involves ideas of limits and
calculus. To understand instantaneous rate of change, we first use this section to de—
velop a solid understanding of average rate of change. Photosynthesis is the conversion of light energy to chemical energy that is
stored in glucose or other organic compounds.1 In the process, oxygen is produced.
The following graph approximates the amount of oxygen a plant produces by pho
tosynthesis. Time 0 is taken to be 8 AM. The rate of photosynthesis depends on a
number of factors, including the amount of light and temperature. 1N. A. Campbell and].B. Reece, Biology, 6th ed.
