Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2haha ok cool well i basically cant read any of them cuz they're blurry so can you just type out one that you need help with?

abannavong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0number 8 its as x goes to infinity

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so it's as x> infinity of (2x^2)/(x^2 +3) ? is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2have y'all talked about L'Hospital's Rule yet?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the L'hospitals rule? can u plz explain

jldstuff393

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i don't think you're supposed to use it if you haven't covered it yet. you don't need it anyway.

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you start by considering the terms with the highest exponents

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if I remember correctly, since x is approaching infinity and it's a rational function, you can rewrite it only including the x's with the greatest exponents

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what would you have if you did that?

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hang on im kinda confused

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that's ok. so what i'm saying is your next step is to rewrite the limit excluding the +3 in the denominator

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to exclude the +3 in the denominator how do u do tht?

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can do this because when x goes to infinity, 2x^5 and x^5 approach infinity and the 3 basically doesn't change the fraction anymore

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because if you imagine really high numbers, say x=100, x^5 would be 10000000000 and 2x^5 would be 20000000000 and the +3 in the denominator makes less and less of a difference in the fraction. (10000000000/20000000003 is really close to 10000000000/20000000000)

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in other words, the fraction approaches 1/2

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2im sorry, it approaches 2

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because 2x^5 is in the numerator

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so ur limit is basically 2 then right?

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok now i get number 8

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so in questions like that, where x is approaching infinity, you can disregard any terms that arent the variables with the highest exponent. like if you had an x^4 being added/subtracted somewhere in the fraction, you could disregard that, too.

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for the same reason, because as x approaches infinity, they change the fraction less and less, even though it has x in it....those terms approach infinity slower than terms of higher powers.

abannavong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im kinda confused on tht part

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's kind of counterintuitive at first

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2as x gets greater, the difference between x^5 and x^4 also gets greater. if x is 10, then x^5 is 100000 and x^4 is 10000, x^5 is 10 times greater than x^4. but when x= 100, x^5 becomes 100 times bigger than x^4, and so on, until x^5 is infinitely bigger than x^4 and you can disregard x^4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can u help me with the continuity limits and onesided ones those ones are the ones that r confusing

jldstuff393

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i can help w one more then i need to get my own work done haha

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so i guess pick one for us to do

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think i get the rest on my THQ but i need help with the continuity ones

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let me post the problem

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x \rightarrow 4} \frac{ \sqrt{x}2 }{ x4 } \]

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so first notice that when x = 4, f(x) = 0/0, which is undefined.

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and since x is approaching 4 from the left (less than 4, getting greater) both the numerator and denominator are going to be negative...do u get that?

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can u explain it a bit more im still a bit confused

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sure. so the way i think of it, is to basically imagine x as some number a little less than 4.. 3.something. when you plug that number into the denominator, 3.something  4 is always going to be negative. (anything less than 4)  4 will be negative, right? (34=1, 3.54=0.5, 3.994 = 0.01)

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah so its like it keeps on approaching 4 right?

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and for the numerator, you can imagine that since the square root of 4 is 2, the square root of anything less than 4 will be less than 2... when you subtract 2 from that number, the result is negative

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ya it keeps approaching 4

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but from the lessthan4 side because it has the minus sign (x>4)

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically the limit for it will negative right?

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well the numerator and denominator are both negative, right?

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the fraction comes out positive

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why r limits soo confusing :3

jldstuff393

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lol i know. wanna see my limit problem that no one will answer?

jldstuff393

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Limit as x>(pi/2) of [tanx+1/(xpi/2)]?

jldstuff393

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2thats my question that no one will answer :(

jldstuff393

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i had it on a quiz today

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can u do the substitution method for tht one

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no because tan of pi/2 is undefined, it goes to neg infinity and infinity from the right and left....

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah ur right oops lol

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but im still kinda confused on the continuity limits and onesided ones

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh boy satellite's here.... it's about to get real xD

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i just realized that your problem is tricky. you need to factor your x4 into (sqrt(x)2)(sqrt(x)+2) then cancel out the numerator

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\lim_{ x\to\frac{\pi}{2}}\frac{\tan(x)+1}{x\frac{\pi}{2}}\]?

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oooh well that's my problem but not hers

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2somewhere down the list!

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jldstuff393 how do u do my problem kinda confuzzled

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i know i know. u remember difference of squares? like (x^2  4) = (x2)(x+2)?

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is this the problem \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 4} \frac{ \sqrt{x}2 }{ x4 }\]?

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah i remember different of squares

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah @satellite73 thts my problem

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so unless satellite has a less tricky way to solve it, you can factor (x4) as a difference of squares... (sqrt(x)2)(sqrt(x)+2)

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2does that make sense?

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the gimmick here is to "rationalize the numerator" by multiplying by the conjugate of \(\sqrt{x}2\) which is \(\sqrt{x}+2\)

jldstuff393
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cuz when u have that, you can cancel out the (sqrt(x)2) in the numerator and denominator

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so u multpily the top and bottom by \[\sqrt{x} +2 \]

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this works because \((a+b)(ab)=a^2b^2\) and so \((\sqrt{x}2)(\sqrt{x}+2)=x4\)

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that cancels with the \(x4\) in the denominator, which is what you want, you want to cancel the zero

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and x4 can cancel in denominator

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so ur limit is one right?

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1leaves you with \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 4} \frac{ \sqrt{x}2 }{ x4 }=\lim_{x \rightarrow 4} \frac{1 }{ \sqrt{x}+2}\]\]

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no limit is not one, now you have to replace \(x\) by 4

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0once u replace x with 4 u get 1/ 4 right?

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whenever you get \(\frac{0}{0}\) you need some gimmick to factor and cancel to get rid of the zeros

jldstuff393

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@jldstuff393 sure if i can what is the question

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk! thanks @satellite73

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i can't really read it, but for 16 replace \(x\) by 2 in both formulas if you get the same number, that is the limit if you get different numbers, there is no limit

abannavong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0number 14 its as deltax goes to 0 with the little plus sign

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i can't read 18 either is it \(\lim_{ x\to 1^+}\) or \(\lim_{x\to 1^}\)?

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then replace \(x\) by 1 in the second formula you get \(11=0\)

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can u help with 14 also

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sure, but i can't really read it can you post in a new question? you do not need to write \(\Delta x\) you can just write \(h\) instead

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is actually very straight forward we will do a little algebra and that is all

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kk hang on dinner quickly

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(x+h)^2+x+h(x^2+x)=x^2+2xh+h^2+x+hx^2x\] \[\cancel{x^2}+2xh+h^2+\cancel{x}+h\cancel{x^2}\cancel{x}=2xh+h+h^2\] divide by \(h\) and get \(2x+1+h\) let \(h\to 0\) be replacing \(h\) by 0 and you get \(2x+1\)

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok! @satellite73 im back from dinner

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that was a quick meal, you should take your time i wrote the solution above, but i used \(h\) instead of \(\Delta x\) it is mostly just algebra, to get rid of the factor of \(\Delta x\) in the denominator, then you replace it by 0

abannavong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im eating and doing work lolz

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you are either eating late or are on the left coast

abannavong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im on the west coast lolz

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1after you finish eating, read my solution above i hope all the steps are clear they are almost all algebra steps, only at the end do you replace \(h\) by 0

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok its jst basic algebra right? so u foil the (x+h)^2 right?

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes exactly it is \((x+h)(x+h)=x^2+2xh+h^2\)

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok and then from there u can combine the like terms and get 2xh+h+h^2

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is all in the numerator you get \[\frac{2xh+h+h^2}{h}\]

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then can u factor out the h on the numerator

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes factor and cancel or divide each term by \(h\) it is the same thing

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok and then u get 2x+1

abannavong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x \rightarrow2 ^{+}}(2x\left[ \left x \right \right]\] help im confused with this one also

satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is that an absolute value sign?

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or is that the floor function?

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its like a bracket and then two straight lines inside

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know what that function is called?

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ughhh i dont remember what it was called

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is either called "floor" or "greatest integer"

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it kinda like a piecewise function or something like tht

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so if \(x>2\) but close to 2, then \([x]=2\)

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you have \[\lim_{x\to 2}2x2=42=2\]

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to be more precise \[\lim_{x\to 2^+}2x2=42=2\]

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok! at first it seemed confusing but oh ok now i get it!

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whereas \[\lim_{x\to 2^}2x2=41=3\] because if \(x<2\) but close to 2, then \([x]=1\)

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok! tht seems soo much easier now!

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes if you know what it means it is not hard here is a nice picture of \(y=2x[x]\) http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2xfloor%28x%29

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok! i get it! i have another question again hang on

abannavong
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it says find the xvalues(if any) at which f is not continuous. which of the discontinuities are removable. f(x)= 1/ x^2+1

satellite73
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[f(x)=\frac{1}{x^2+1}\] has no discontinuities, since it is a rational function and the denominator is never 0 since \(x^2\geq 0\) for any \(x\) you can see that \(x^2+1\geq 1\) no matter what \(x\) is, so this function has no discontinuities. as the denominator is never zero
