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

Yes, and I think?

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?

schmidtdancer Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so would it be lim f(4)?
 2 years ago

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

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

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

so what would we do divide 4?

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

lol. Ok so for a, we still have [4 lim f(x)] as x approaches c.. ok

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

Is it just 2? I'm not sure

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

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

what do you mean, sorry

Its lim [4f(x)] for a.
 2 years ago

apoorvk Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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!
 2 years ago

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

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.

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

lim f(x)/g(x) as x> c = ??

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