# Limits, find a limit that exist in absolute value but not outside the absolute value.

Let I be an open interval that contains the point c and let f be a function that is defined on I except possibly at the point c. Suppose that lim |f(x)| as x->c exists. Give an example to show that lim f(x) as x->c may not exist.

Not really sure of an example for this?

$$f(x) = \left\{\begin{array}{lr} -1 & x < 0 \\ 1 & x > 0\end{array}\right.$$
@Arnold What is $|f(x)|$ if $x \ne 0$? – user61527 Oct 21 '13 at 4:54
@Arnold I just didn't define it at $0$, since there's no need to. – user61527 Oct 21 '13 at 5:00
