Topic Review on "Title":

Definition of the limit of f(x):
Let be a function such as is the limit of at the point if and only if for any there is a such that whenever satisfies  Equivalently we say that tends to as tends to or write

Limit Operations:

Let and  be functions.

If and both exists, then

1. exists and

2. exists and

3. if also then exists and

Properties of Limits: 

1) If and then
2) If and there exists a positive number such that for then

3) If and there exists a positive number such that for then

4) If is bounded for all (i.e. there is a such that for all and then

Definition of the continuity of functions:
Let be a function. is said to be continuous at  if exists and

One sided continuity:
Let be a function. is said to be left continuous at if exits and Similarly is said to be right continuous at if

"Title" Tutorial Summary :

Limits of functions are used to develop the idea of the evaluation of a limit. One sided limits are introduced with the help of example problems. In this tutorial limits are given in their traditional definition. Limit operations and properties of limits are covered with the help of examples. The idea of a one sided limit is mentioned in some of the examples covered in this tutorial.

Continuity and its definition is mentioned in some of the example problems. The concept of one-sided continuity and the properties of continuous functions is mentioned in one part of this tutorial. The rate of change principle is showing with a graphical and a physical interpretation.

Tutorial Features:

Specific Tutorial Features:
