Course: Calculus I
Topic: Limits and Continuity
Subtopic: Limits Algebraically

Overview

It is important to be able to evaluate limits graphically and numerically, but the primary approach is algebraically. The goal is to use algebraic methods to simplify the function, so that the x-value being approached can be plugged into the function producing the limit's result.

Objectives

By the end of this topic you should know and be prepared to be tested on:

Terminology

Define: limit that is of the "0/0 case"
