Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to have a limit you want to get the same number as you approach x=1 from below or from above. when x < 1 we use the first expression 4 x as x gets closer to 1 we get close to 4 (1) = 4+1 =5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you also have to get 5 when x > 1 and you get closer to 1 so use the expression x+6 when x>1 as x gets close to 1, what does x+6 get close to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we get the same number from "above" and from "below" so we have a limit it is 5 (notice the middle expression 5 for x=1 does not really matter)
