\[f(x) = \left[\begin{matrix}x^2-1 & x<1 \\ 4-x & x>=1\end{matrix}\right]\]

- hawkfalcon

I can do the lim, but how do i do it on that:O
it lin x->1

- hawkfalcon

\[\lim_{x \rightarrow 1}\]

Your graph will look something like this

What is the limit for the function x^2 - 1 as it approaches 1?

- hawkfalcon

Erm. -inf. right?

- anonymous

Hmm, not quite. You want to approach x = 1.

- anonymous

Follow the graph of x^2 -1 as it approaches x =1. What is the y-value?

- hawkfalcon

0

- hawkfalcon

I think:3

- hawkfalcon

Sorry *.* i'm not very good a limits:(

- anonymous

Yes :) then follow the graph of 4-x as it approaches x=1. You start from the right hand side and move back till you reach x=1.

- anonymous

What would you say the limit was for that equation?

- hawkfalcon

3

- anonymous

Ok, are the two limits for both equations the same?

- hawkfalcon

Nope. Oh:3. Dur dur. You compare the 2 equations:3

- anonymous

What is your final answer for the problem?

- hawkfalcon

DNE

- hawkfalcon

@Denebel one last Q. It also says to find x->+ and -. In this cast, thats DNE too. right?

- anonymous

Nope, as x->+ means when x approaches a number (in this case, 1) from the right hand side.
x->- means when x approaches (1) from the left hand side.

- hawkfalcon

But those are not the same for either left or right.

- anonymous

You only need to make sure they are the same when they don't give you a +/-
Since the next part of the problem asks you to state the limit when it comes from +, then when it comes from - you say what you told me before.
So when x-> 1+ is when it approaches x=1 from the right side. You only look at the function 4-x in this case.
x-> 1- is when it approaches x=1 from the left side, so look at the function x^2 - 1

- hawkfalcon

Oh so you only look at each problem separately then :O

- hawkfalcon

so lim x->1- = 0 and + = 3 and x-> = DNE

- anonymous

Yup.

<3 Thank you so much!
