definition of a limit

Speed limit  the speed which you can reach but not go over

“I’ve hit my limit”  I’ve had enough, I can’t take any more

In calculus, a limit is the intended value of a function

Definition of a limit
right and left hand limits1

For a limit to exist, the right-hand limit (RHL) and the left-hand limit (LHL) must both exist and must be equal

Right and left hand limits

Therefore, the limit does not exist

evaluating limits

Limits can be evaluated 3 ways:

    • Graphically
    • Algebraically (several different method)
    • Using the Sandwich Theorem (only some limits) also known as the squeeze theorem
Evaluating limits
