    give an example to show that \[\lim_{x \rightarrow a} f(x)\] and \[\lim_{x \rightarrow a} g(x)\] doesnot exist but \[\lim_{x \rightarrow a} (f(x)+g(x))\] exist

    try this \[ \lim_{x \to 0}{\sin^2x x \over x^2}\] expand sin^2 x as 1 + cos^2x

    let f(x)=x and g(x)=-(x+1) and a=infinity then \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty } f(x)=\infty \] and \[ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty } g(x)=-\infty\] but \[ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}f(x)+g(x)=-1\]

    try something like of this form where you can take LCM and use L'Hopital's rule \[ \infty - \infty \]

    Woops!! \[ \lim_{x \to 0}{\sin^2x \over x^2} = \lim_{x \to 0}{1 \over x^2}+\lim_{x \to 0}{\cos^2 x \over x^2}\]
