    no. the blue line is crossing the axis at x=-1, so the height is zero here

    Medals 1

    \[\lim\limits_{ x\to 2^+} f(x)\] is where x is a little bit to the right of 2 so is a tiny bit to the right of the open circle

  21. UnkleRhaukus
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 1

    if you were looking for the limit as \[x\to 2\] and both circles were open then it would be undefined

  22. onegirl
    • 2 years ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.
    Medals 0

    so it will be positive 2?
