Limit of a Sum of Two Functions

In this post, I show that $ \lim_{x \rightarrow a} [f(x) + g(x)]$ is equal to $\lim_{x \rightarrow a}f(x) + \lim_{x \rightarrow a} g(x)$ given that $ \lim_{x \rightarrow a}f(x) = A$ and $ \lim_{x \rightarrow a}g(x)…

Limit of a Function Multiplied by a Scalar

In this post, I show that $ \lim_{x \rightarrow a} [c f(x)] = c \lim_{x \rightarrow a} [f(x)]$ if $c$ is a variable for any real number. To do this, I approximately follow the steps…

Limit of a Constant

In this post, I prove that $ \displaystyle \lim_{x \rightarrow a} c = c $ if $c$ is a variable for any real number. To do this, I approximately follow the outline from reference…

The sine function divided by its angle, and a certain limit

What is $ \lim_{x\rightarrow0} \frac{\sin x}{x}$ ? Recall the definition of a limit, repeated here for reference [2]. A function $f(x)$ approaches a limit $A$ as $x$ approaches $a$ if, and only if, for each…
