Given a function \(f\). the limit of \(f\) at \(a\) (if it exists) is the value we get out of the function when we put in numbers really close to \(a\) but not necessarily at \(a\)

This is a very crude way of thinking about it.

"And what are these fluxions? The velocities of evanescent increments? And what are these same evanescent increments? They are neither finite quantities, nor quantities infinitely small, nor yet nothing. May we not call them ghosts of departed quantities?" IOW: limits allow us to divide numbers by zero without going to hell :p

Yeah, I second that, division by zero was undefined until Newton and Leibniz came along and basically said we're allowed to divide 0 by 0 in certain contexts and get a real number out.

no this is not true at all, there is nothing about dividing by 0 nor do we ever divide by 0
