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

    That's: lim [4 f(x)] ---> right? x ->c and [.] represents greatest integer function (GIF) - right?

    Ohkay... 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?

    umm no, actually, that's 4 times the limits - \[[4 \times \lim \limits_{x\rightarrow c}^{}f(x) ]\]

    Cool 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: \[[ 4.\lim\limits_{x \rightarrow c}f(x)]\]

    Now 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: \[4 \times (3/2)\]

    hey I need to make one thing sure - is that [.] for a step-up function or just general brackets?

    if nothing's been stated, they're probably just general brackets~

    has 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!

    See, 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.
