Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0factor out of a negative from the absolute value so it's (xx3)/x3 since absolute value of 1 is just 1... now you want to cancel the x3 so you have to get rid of the absolute value bars... when you have absolute value bars you have two cases, either x(x3) or x(x3) on top. In both cases, the x3 will cancel, leaving x in case 1 and +x in the other so the limit dne

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok thanks. so it doesn't exist as a one sided (i.e. approaching 3 from the + side or approaching 3 from the  side) either, correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I take that back, it equals x when it approaches from the + side and x when it approaches from the  side
