Advanced Math Solutions – Limits Calculator, the basics

The limit of a function is a fundamental concept in calculus concerning the behavior of that function near a particular point.  Limits help us approximate functions for any point x even if the function itself does not exist at that point (to infinity and beyond).

We will start with the substitution method (a.k.a the plug-and-chug method).  Plug in the value to which x is approaching (can’t get easier than this).  The limit is simply the function value.  Pay attention, this method works for limits that involve continuous functions only.

The following limit properties can be useful:

If the limits of f(x), g(x) exist, then:

  • \lim_{x\to{a}}[f(x)\pm{g(x)}]=\lim_{x\to{a}}{f(x)}\pm\lim_{x\to{a}}{g(x)}
  • \lim_{x\to{a}}[f(x)\cdot{g(x)}]=\lim_{x\to{a}}{f(x)}\cdot\lim_{x\to{a}}{g(x)}
  • \lim_{x\to{a}}[c\cdot{f(x)}]=c\cdot\lim_{x\to{a}}{f(x)}
  • \lim_{x\to{a}}[\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}]=\frac{\lim_{x\to{a}}{f(x)}}{\lim_{x\to{a}}{g(x)}},\:where\:\lim_{x\to{a}}{g(x)}\neq{0}


Lets start with a simple example (click here):



Here’s another example involving product (click here)


One more example involving quotient  (click here):



That was a breeze.  In the next post we will continue with discontinuous functions

  3. Maths is an extremely difficult subject for students. This is only due to the initial fear that they have towards maths. But if they develop a basic understanding of this subject, they would feel it as very easy. One of the main problems that students tell about is the number of equations that they have to learn. They get confused in learning these equations. Anyways learning this subject will be much easier if the students have a good teacher to guide them. Teacher has to make the child to understand maths from its basics. This will help the students to develop their skill in maths. This website is like a good teacher. It explains each problem as step by step. Any student can easily get the idea of the problem from the steps given. It discusses about problems that comes under various topics in maths. I really appreciate for taking this effort.
    Submission of good quality and perfect essay is one of the main assignments given to the students. It helps the teachers to test the writing ability of the students. Normally a very short period of time is given to students to complete their essay. This time will not be enough to complete the essay. So, students have to write their essays in a much faster way to complete it on time. Planning is key step to write essays in a faster way. First of all we have to find out the date of submission of the essay. We have to finish our essay at least two days earlier to the date of submission. Understanding the essay topic very well is the next important step in the essay writing . After getting a clear idea about the topic we have to collect a maximum amount data from many different sources.
