    the answers for the limits are always in the y axis so we need to determine 3^{-}, 3^{+} and 3. If all limit values are the same we have a limit. If not, well no limit exist.

    As you walk on the given graph towards \(x=3\) from the left, what \(y\) value do you end up at ? |dw:1436513923956:dw|

    So we say the limit from the left of 3 is -1

    I was writing an example to, but I think you understand it now jessica?

    because as we are moving 3 on the left, we've noticed that the y-axis goes to -1.

    Just to make sure what is \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 3^+} f(x)\]

    Yes thats it. Mathematically we write `walking toward 3 from left` as \(\large \lim\limits_{x\to 3^{\color{red}{-}}}\) ,

    Also if they equal, then we say the limit exists

    ^ yeah but the question is just asking for one part of 3 which was to the left.
