Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use limits for that, say lim as x goes to infinity of xx = 0, so u can't be sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i believe it is set as an inequality, for example, 4 + \infty = 4+ \infty i > \infty i

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am so confuse. for example, lim x> 3+ (1/x3)+10 the answer is = infinitive. why its not 10...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is infinity because when X becomes 3 the bottom of the fraction equals zero. When you divide 1 by a really small number the value is really big because a really small value goes into something many times. Then as 1/0 is undefined so is infinity. So when x goes to three it is going to infinity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let me elaborate on this problem: You have lim as x > 3+ of ( 1/(x3) 10 ) = infinity. Why? The answer above is basically correct, because 1/(x3) approaches infinity, as x approaches 3 from the right side. Pick some number that approaches 3 from the right, say 3.00000001: 1/(3.000000013) = 1,000,000,000. The smaller the number becomes, the larger the limit: For 3.000000000001 it would be 10,000,000,000,000; etc, etc..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so in that case it approaches infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What if x approached three from the left, or you had lim as x > 3 of ( 1/(x3) 10 ). Pick some number that approaches 3 from the left, say 2.9999999, then your answer would approach negative infinity, as you would be getting 100000000000000, etc etc instead of +10000000000000 etc, etc. And in both cases you can ignore the 10, as infinity(some very large number) minus 10 is still infinity(some very large number), so –infinity – 10 is still –infinity, because 10 is insignificant once we are dealing with huge numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now if you had to solve lim as x > 3 of ( 1/(x3) 10 ), just three, without any plus or minus above it, the answer would be the limit does not exist, as I just showed that if I approached 3 from the right, I would get +infinity and if I approached 3 from the left I would get –infinity. For limit to exist, right hand limit must be equal to left hand limit, so in case of lim as x> of ( 1/(x3) 10) the limit would NOT exist; it would not be equal to neither –infinity or +infinity (it would be equal to +infinity if limit from left = limit from right = +infinity, or –infinity if limit from left = limit from right = infinity).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0limits are kinda hard to understand, but it's more of abstract type of stuff... but i think u will get it eventually.
