1. Limits and Limits at infinity Limit Review 1

2. Limits can be calculated 3 ways • Numerically • Graphically • Analytically (direct substitution) • Properties of limits (pages 56-58)

3. Graphically • Determine the value of y as x approaches some number c

4. Formal Definition of a Limit

5. Analytic techniques • Direct substitution • Factoring- cancel common factors • Rationalize- multiply by the conjugate

6. Find 2) Find

7. 3) Find

8. One sided limits • left • Right • Limit existence

9. 4) Find

10. 5) Find

11. Infinite Limits • Limit of f(x) increases or decreases without bound as x approaches some number c • Limit does not exist DNE • Vertical asymptotes occur when limits are infinite • Limit as x approaches 1

12. 6) Find

13. 7) Find

14. 8) Find

15. 9) Find

16. Limits at Infinity • Identifies the behavior of the function as x tends to infinity • If , then L is a horizontal asymptote • Usually f(x) is rational • Limit as x approaches infinity

17. 10) Find

18. 11) Find

19. Limits at Infinity Shortcuts • If the degree is higher in the denominator, then the limit is equal to zero • If the degree is higher in the numerator then the limit does not exist • If the degrees are the same, then the limit equals the ratio of the coefficients BOBO BOTN EATS DC
