How do I isolate the x in this expression? (ie. so x is by itself). In other words, how do I factor that fraction out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think you must start with \[\frac{2x}{2x}<0.2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's in the format of \(\ \Huge \left f(x)  L \right < \epsilon \). Im trying to factor that expression so I can use the end result to find \(\ \delta \).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[0.2<\frac{2x}{2x}<0.2\] is the next step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you probably are taking the limit as \(x\to 2\) so you have control over the size of the numerator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, I am taking the lim as x approaches 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or you can write \[\frac{2x}{2x}=\frac{1}{2}\frac{x2}{x}<0.2\] so that \[\frac{x2}{x}<0.4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I do that, then where would I go from there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have control over \(x2\) that is you can make it as small as you like as for the \(x\) in the denominator, you can simply say that since you are taking the limit as \(x\to \frac{1}{2}\) you can assert that it is say between \(\frac{1}{3}\) and \(\frac{2}{3}\) so that the whole thing will be largest when the denominator is smallest, namely when it is \(\frac{1}{3}\) giving the inequality \[\frac{2x}{x}<3x2\]
