A polynomial that the function approaches as.

• Increasing on an interval

A function ƒ is increasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a positive change in.

• Infinite limit

A special case of a limit that does not exist.

• Irreducible quadratic over the reals

• Limit

limx:aƒ1x2 = L means that ƒ(x) gets arbitrarily close to L as x gets arbitrarily close (but not equal) to a
