curve at a point p on that curve the line through p that touches the curve at a single point is called the tangent line at p Change E position Average Velocity Time elapsed Instant Velocity Velocity

afx L and say the limit of fx as x approaches a is equal to L If we can make the values of fX as close to L as we want by taking x to be close enough to a but not equal to a Defn We write limit as x approaches a from the left a39 and from the right 61 and say the limit of fX as x approaches a from the left is equal to L if we can make the values of fx as close as we want to L by taking x to be close to a and xlta a EX Lim Km fX L xlta Lim XDafx L altx c Rule lim XD a x L if and only if Lim ma fX L AND Lim Kg fx L 1 Infinite Limits when a function keeps going toward positive or negative infinity which are not numbers it has no limit thus the limit DNE Does Not Exist e Defn Let f be a function defined on both sides of a except at a itself Then lim XD afx 00 means that we can make the values of fx as large as we want by taking values of x very close but not equal to a 39quot Similarly lim XD afx 00 means the values of fx can be made very large negative numbers ONE sided limits are
