Theorem 1 basic limit laws

Theorem 1: Basic Limit Laws

If lim x→c f(x) and lim x→c g(x) exist, then

  • Sum Law: lim x→c (f(x) + g(x)) exists and lim x→c (f(x) + g(x)) = lim x→c f(x) + lim x→c g(x).

  • Constant Multiple Law: For any number k, lim x→c kf(x) exists and lim x→c kf(x) = k lim x→c f(x).

  • Product Law: lim x→c f(x)g(x) exists and lim x→c f(x)g(x) = (lim x→c f(x))(lim x→c g(x)).


Theorem 1 continued

Theorem 1 Continued

  • Quotient Law: If lim x→c g(x) ≠ 0, then lim x→c f(x)/g(x) exists and lim x→c f(x)/g(x) = lim x→c f(x)

    lim x→c g(x).

  • Powers & Roots: if p, q are integers with q ≠ 0, then limx→c exists and it equals . Assume that lim x→c f(x) ≥ 0 if q is even, and that lim x→c ≠ 0 if p/q < 0. In particular for n a positive integer, limx→c [f(x)]n = (lim x→c f(x))n and

Example 1

  • lim x→4 x2 + 2x – 7

  • lim x→-1

Substitution can be used to evaluate limits when the function is continuous.
