Limits and multiple variables

Is there any easy way to show the limit of a non-continuous function, that is, besides doing an epsilon-delta proof?

For example, how would you show:

Re: Limits and multiple variables

I don't know better method, but here how I solve this:

,so we can proof it only for positive x and y and xy is positive so we can sqrt() it:
, but
but
and

But it won't work in all ways: It can bring to something like that:

that is no null at all the cases.
