Use the information to evaluate the limits. I have a drawing attached.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can do one at a time .there are 4. but heres A^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That's: lim [4 f(x)] > right? x >c and [.] represents greatest integer function (GIF)  right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, and I think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ohkay... so.. that basically means I guess: dw:1342983884987:dw You have the value of that limit inside provided, you need to plug it in and proceed  understandable?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so would it be lim f(4)?

apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2umm no, actually, that's 4 times the limits  \[[4 \times \lim \limits_{x\rightarrow c}^{}f(x) ]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh okay, how would I solve that?

apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and \(\lim \limits_{x\rightarrow c}^{}f(x) = 3/2\) is already given!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what would we do divide 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1im confsued.. what do we do

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Cool down your nerves  nothing to get confused about! :) (ain;t no monster :P lol) I just brought the whole limit expression inside the GIF brackets  we can do that since it will not affect the limit value). Then, since \(\large \lim\limits_{x \rightarrow t}k.f(x) = k.\lim\limits_{x \rightarrow t}f(x)\), for any function f(x) and constant k, I take the '4' out of the limit, and I end up with: \[[ 4.\lim\limits_{x \rightarrow c}f(x)]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol. Ok so for a, we still have [4 lim f(x)] as x approaches c.. ok

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now it's given (in your first whiteboard drawing above) that \(\lim \limits_{x\rightarrow c}f(x) = 3/2\), I substitute that value into \([4\lim \limits_{x\rightarrow c}f(x)]\), an hence now I get: \[4 \times (3/2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is it just 2? I'm not sure

apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hey I need to make one thing sure  is that [.] for a stepup function or just general brackets?

apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if nothing's been stated, they're probably just general brackets~

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what do you mean, sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Its lim [4f(x)] for a.

apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2has anything been stated for those square brackets? If not am guessing they are just normal parenthesis, and not for GIF  in that case the second one would be 2 alright!

schmidtdancer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So a is still 6? and b is 2? lim [4f(x)] for a is exactly how it written

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok cool! so far i have a as 6, b as 2. Ill write c now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2See, if [.] represents GIF, it should be mentioned, because in my education system, the rule is generally they would mention it if it is for a GIF  I am not sure about how's it stated in Us schools.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok I wrote c. it says; lim[f(x)g(x)] as x>c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay here you use the funda: dw:1342986659285:dw

schmidtdancer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok so would c be 3/4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lim f(x)/g(x) as x> c = ??

apoorvk

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay same way as the others  can you try this? You need to separate the two limits and then divide them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok would it be 3?
