### Evaluating Limits Analytically

Lesson 1.3

What Is the Squeeze Theorem?

Today we look at various properties of limits, including the Squeeze Theorem

How do we evaluate limits?

- Numerically
- Construct a table of values.

- Graphically
- Draw a graph by hand or use TI’s.

- Analytically
- Use algebra or calculus.

Properties of LimitsThe Fundamentals

Basic Limits:

Let b and c be real numbers and

let n be a positive integer:

Algebraic Properties of Limits:

Let b and c be real numbers, let n be a positive integer, and let f and g be functions

with the following properties:

Let n be a positive integer. The following limit is valid for all c if n is odd, and is valid for all c > 0 if n is even…

Example: and which property was used.

By now you should have already arrived at the conclusion that many algebraic functions can be evaluated by direct substitution. The six basic trig functions also exhibit this desirable characteristic…

Let c be a real number in the domain of the

given trig function.

A Strategy For Finding Limits and which property was used.

- Learn to recognize which limits can be evaluated by direct substitution.
- If the limit of f(x) as x approaches ccannot be evaluated by direct substitution, try to find a function g that agrees with f for all x other than x = c.
- Use a graph or table to find, check or reinforce your answer.

- Strategy: simplify the algebraic fraction

- Graph the Function
- Trace value close tospecified point

- Use a table to evaluateclose to the point inquestion

Factor, cancel, and try again!

Squeeze Rule limit exist?

- Given g(x) ≤ f(x) ≤ h(x) on an open interval containing cAnd …
- Then

Common Types of Behavior Associated with the Nonexistence of a Limit

- f(x) approaches a different number from the right side of c than it approaches from the left side.
- f(x) increases or decreases without bound as x approaches c.
- f(x) oscillates between 2 fixed values as x approaches c.
