That's sensible. Oct8 comment Finding $\lim\limits_{x\rightarrow 2} \dfrac{x^3-8}{x^2-x-2}$ And theres my answer.. I didn't even think that the denominator was factorable! How could I have missed that. Thank you - I will approve your answer when the time limit for which I can't approve any answer is up. Oct8 asked Finding $\lim\limits_{x\rightarrow 2} \dfrac{x^3-8}{x^2-x-2}$ Sep30 accepted Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation Sep30 comment Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation @Henning: I'm mostly of English decent, but not from the UK - I apologize for the confusion though. Thank you so much for your time and help. Sep30 comment Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation I am a freshman at a university in the United States - this is my first semester, 5th week. Regarding my most previous comment @Henning, am I correct? Sep30 comment Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation @Henning The question mentions 'show that there is interval... blah blah blah... where f has the same sign as f(c)', so I have a feeling the answer to that question is 'No'. Sep30 comment Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation Actually, the professor didn't design the homework. We covered a section on continuity in the textbook, and he likes to skip parts of each section (obviously the part we've been talking about). The textbook company (I believe Pearson?) has an online homework system established for each section that my professor requires us to do. The educational level - well, this is Calculus 1. Sep30 comment Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation There's one more question this follows this, a simple yes or no: If the distance traveled away from f(c) is less than the absolute value of f(c), is it possible for f to change sign? Sep30 comment Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation @mixedmath: I'd rather not mention it, as not to really trash it's reputation. It's really got a great Computer Science program (and is #1 in its region) [which is my major], but the math department seems lacking. Sep30 comment Question Regarding Limits and Confusing Notation Upon reading this, it seems to me that the solution to my question would then be $\epsilon$ = $|f(c)|$.
