In problems 1-6, complete the table using calculate and use the result to estimate the limit.
Question 1. Solution: Question 2. Solution: ∴ Limit is 0.25

Question 3. Solution: ∴ Limit is 0.288

Question 4. Solution: ∴ Limit is -0.25 Question 5. Solution: ∴ Limit is 1

Question 6. Solution: ∴ Limit is 0

In exercise problems 7-15, use the graph to find the limits (if it exists). If the limit does not exist, explain why?
Question 7.
$$\lim _{x \rightarrow 3}$$(4 – x)
Solution: Limit exist and is equal to 1

Question 8.
$$\lim _{x \rightarrow 1}$$(x2 + 2)
Solution: Limit exist and is equal to = 3

Question 9. Solution: Question 10. Solution: Question 11. Solution: Limit does not exist Question 12. Solution:
When x → 5, (x – 5) = -(x – 5)
∴ $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 5^{-}} \frac{-(x-5)}{(x-5)}$$ = -1
When x → 5+, (x – 5) = (x – 5)  Question 13.
$$\lim _{x \rightarrow 1}$$ sin(πx)
Solution:  Question 14.
$$\lim _{x \rightarrow 0}$$ (sec x)
Solution: Question 15.
$$\lim _{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{2}}$$ tan x
Solution: Limit does not exist

Sketch the graph of f, then identify the values of x0 for which $$\lim _{x \rightarrow x_{0}}$$ f(x) exists.
Question 16. Solution: Question 17. Solution: Limit exists except at x0 = π Question 18.
Sketch the graph of a function f that satisfies the given values: Solution: Question 19.
Write a brief description of the meaning of the notation $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 8}$$ f(x) = 25
Solution: Question 20.
If f(2) = 4, can you conclude anything about the limit of f(x) as x approaches 2?
Solution:
No, f(x) = 4, It is the value of the function at x = 2
This limit doesn’t exists at x = 2
Since f(2) = 4
It need not imply that $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 2^{-}} f(x)=\lim _{x \rightarrow 2^{+}} f(x)$$
∴ we cannot conclude at x = 2

Question 21.
If the limit of f(x) as z approaches 2 is 4, can you conclude anything about f(2)?
Explain reasoning.
Solution:
$$\lim _{x \rightarrow 2}$$ f(x) 4 , $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 2^{-}}$$ f(x) = $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 2^{+}}$$ f(x) = 4
When x approaches 2 from the left or from the right f(x) approaches 4.
Given that $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 2^{-}}$$ f(x) = $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 2^{+}}$$ f(x) = 4
The existence or non existence at x =2 has no leaving on the existence of the limit of f(x) as x approaches to 2.
∴ We cannot conclude the value of f(2)

Question 22.
Evaluate: $$\lim _{x \rightarrow 3} \frac{x^{2}-9}{x-3}$$ if it exists by finding f(3) and f(3+).
Solution:   Question 23.
Verify the existence of Solution: Limit does not exist
