    using the limit laws, we can say \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = (\lim_{x\to 2}x^3) * (\lim_{x\to 2}f(x))\] \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = 2^3 * f(2)\] \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = 8 * f(2)\] \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = ???\]

    to find f(2) you would either use a function or the graph since you don't have the function, you'll have to use the graph

    ok as x gets closer and closer to 2, the graph is approaching the point (2,2) sure there is a hole here, but if you start on either side of x = 2 and approach it, you'll reach this hole so that's why \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2} f(x) = 2\]

    \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = (\lim_{x\to 2}x^3) * (\lim_{x\to 2}f(x))\] \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = 2^3 * 2\] \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = 8 * 2\] \[\Large \lim_{x\to 2}x^3 f(x) = 16\]

    If f and g are continuous functions with f(1) = 5 and the following limit, find g(1).

    this is a completely different problem right (with different functions f and g)?

    that's correct, g(1) = 8

    you separate the limit up plug in x = 1 then replace f(1) with 5 and g(1) with y afterwards you solve for y to get y = 8
