  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
