    A limit can be thought of a value that a function approaches for any infinitesimally small window. For example: |dw:1356912601912:dw| If we defined this function as y = x^2/x, then the limit of this function as x approaches 0 would be 0. Note that it doesn't matter that x = 0 is not actually defined in the function. A limit ignores whether a point is defined, but rather focuses on the behavior of the function for values closer and closer and closer ...(infinitesimally closer) to the function. Someone more qualified could give you a formal definition of a limit.
