Let \[f(x) = x^2 - 2x +1 \] use the epsilon-delta definition to show that: \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 3} f(x) = 4\] I've come up with this: \[|( x-1)^2 - 4| < \epsilon \] \[| x-3| < \sqrt{\epsilon } \] Set delta as the squareroot of epsilon: \[| x-3| < \delta =\sqrt{\epsilon } \] How do I finish this, I get it all wrong by taking the left expresson to the second power

How do you have the limit is 4? You won't be able to prove what you said. That does x->2 right? So f->2^2-2(2)+1=4-4+1=0+1=1
Well, that the limit is 4 was given in the assignment and \[f(x)=x2−2x+=4 \]. where x=3 I think you got the limit wrong it's \[ x \rightarrow 3\]
Ok. I couldn't read that little number.

Thanks. So you have |x^2-2x+1-4|
E is epsilon d is delta by the way :)
I hope that helps. I will try to check back with you later. I have to go for now, but I return in like 2 hours :(
Got it! Thanks a lot, really appreciate it! :D
Great remember when showing that limit above you have to say let d=min{1, E/|x+1| where you have chosen x based off letting d<1}
Oh and wow. I can read that 3 on this computer but not that other one.
