Overview

We have examined infinite limits (limits whose answer is infinity) graphically, but in this lesson we evaluate them algebraically. Limits that approach a real number but whose answer is positive infinity or negative infinity are graphically indicating a vertical asymptote exists at that real number.

CAUTION: Don’t confuse the following:
