Course: Calculus I
Topic: Limits and Continuity
Subtopic: One-Sided Limits

Overview

We have examined one-sided limits (limits from the left or from the right) graphically, but in this lesson we evaluate them algebraically.

CAUTION: Watch for limits that do not exist because the two side limits don't match.
