Check out example c, explain to me how and why he gets 0 in the first 2 limits when he has a situation of 0/x^4 and 0/y^4 where x and y goes to 0.

Come on, it's saturday night, you dont go out and do stuff, you do math stuff instead... :P
Over here, it's actually early Saturday afternoon...lol.
Based on what he says, I think he's saying "As x approaches 0, it's 0, and as y approaches 0, it's 0, but let's look at how they both approach 0 at the same time." And by approaching how they both approach zero at the same time, you can see how the function behaves along the line y=x. Now, if you analyze it along y=x, you can substitute x for each y in the function, and you end up getting x^4/4x^4 - which simplifies to 1/4.
It's kinda awkward to describe in words, but does it make sense conceptually?
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
makes sense to me
It sure makes sense at that approach, but he approaches it at 2 other ways in the same example, all 3 are necessary to evaluate the limit at that point. I do fully understand that 3rd way which you described, but the question as said is the first 2 approaches. Anyone who understand those? lim (x,0) -> (0,0) and lim (0,y) -> (0,0)
