### Re: Limits!

Hi anonimnystefy,

I find most of the limits yield to the techniques discussed here.
I'll post if I find something extraordinary!

I couldn't come up with another method, can you?

Let x = 1/y.  As x --> 0, then 1/y --> 0.

So y --> oo (or -oo).

The limit could be expressed as:

Notes:
--------

Step 2 to step 3 used the Binomial Theorem.

Step 3 through step 5 could use some
justification/details to support the
continued patterns of terms and expressions,
respectively.

Would you don't mind if i post a problem?It's just that i don't want the topic to get forgotten.

Absolutely!
Anyone may post limit questions here.

### Re: Limits!

hi gAr

thanks.

here's one interesting limit:

i haven't encountered it yet and its kind hasn't been mentioned in this topic but it is one of the easier limits of this kind

Hi,

I too haven't done multivariable limits!

### Re: Limits!

Hi anonimnystefy;

Is this one you want help on?

I have never done one but I know how the packages do them. I think they nest the limits:

Just plug x = 0 into the limit:

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

the first limit does not exist and the second one is correct but i tried to make a very bad joke.

### Re: Limits!

the one in #140 doesn't exist because when we aproach it from two different paths it has different values.it is similair to the situation with one variable limits when the left and the right limit do not match up.
