and do not stay close to any fixed real number. We cannot even say that the limit approaches or because when x < 1 , the function 1 x 1 takes on values that are negative; but when x > 1 , the function is positive. So an additional reason that the limit can not exist is that the function does not approach from both the left and right, nor does it approach from both the left and the right.

Math 1110 (Fall 2011) HW3 Presentation Problems 2 Question 2. (6 points) Suppose that f ( x ) is an even function of x . Does knowing that lim x 2 f ( x ) = 7 tell you anything about either lim x 2 f ( x ) or lim x 2 + f ( x ) ? Give reasons for your answers. Since f is an even function x , we know that for each point c in the domain of f , c is also in the domain of f and f ( c ) = f ( c ) . In particular, this means that if a right-hand limit exists for f as x c , then a left-hand limit exists for f as x c and the two are equal. Similarly, if a left-hand limit exists for f as x c , then a right-hand limit exists for f as x c and the two are equal.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
