Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what's the y value at x=3, if you're coming up the line from the left side?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no.. what you want to do is check f(x) for values close to x=3, but coming at it just slightly on the left side. That's what the x>3 means.. the  means come at x=3 from the left side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's ok.. imagine traveling along the line of the graph from left to right, kind of sneaking up to where x=3 The thing about a limit is that you don't actually care about the yvalue AT x=3, you only care what that yvalue is approaching as you get closer and closer. So looking at the graph, if x is say, equal to 2, then what is y?
