Goes through what a limit of a function is and is not , how to ind the slope of a tangent line, and a derivate at a point, and finding its function

1

What is the Difference Quotation Formula?

f(x+h)-f(x)/h

New cards

2

Common Behaviors Associated with Nonexistence of a Limit

f(x) approaches a different number from the right side of a than it approaches from the left side.

f(x) increases or decreases without bound as x approaches a.

f(x) oscillates between two fixed values as x approaches a.

Formula #1: Slope of the tangent line (Common Point)

Lim x➡️a f(x)-f(a)/x-a

New cards

4

Formula #2: Slope of Tangent Line+ Derivative at a Point( instantaneous rate of change at x=a

Lim h➡️0 f(a+h)-f(a)/h

New cards

5

Formula #3: Derivative Funiction( find a f(x) function

Lim h➡️0 f(x+h)-f(x)/h

New cards

6

Existence of a Limit Theorem

The limit of the right and left are the same value so the limit is same value.

New cards

7

Basic Limit Laws#1: The Sum/Difference Law

You can distribute your limit to each part of the expression( put the limit before each factor)

New cards

8

Basic Limit Laws#2: The Constant Multiple Law

The constant can be moved outside the limit and away from sitting next to the limit.

New cards

9

Basic Limit Laws#3: The Product Law

You can multiply each function by each other as long as they have the same limit

New cards

10

Basic Limit Laws#4: The Quotient Law

The value of the limit on num. and the limit of the denom. Equals the limit of the fun in num/ denom. As long as the denom. Does not equal zero.

New cards

11

Basic Limit Laws#5: The Power Law

As long as the n(interfere) is positive than the limit can be moved ext to then function and done together

New cards

12

Squeeze Theorem:

If the upper function( right) and lower function(left) are equal and the function is between the other two , than that middle function equals the equaled value of the outside functions

Definition of Continuous

14

Discontinuity: Removable

If you can fill in the circle and create a continuous function( has a function value and limit)

New cards

15

Discontinuity: Jump

Where you have a gap( break) between the line and you would have to go up or down to continue

New cards

16

Discontinuity: Infinite

An asymptote is usually a good indicator, but it’s when both the function value and limit does not exist in that limit

New cards

17

Continuous Domain

Be sure to write and not include anything discontinuous

New cards

18

Polynomials + Rational Functions

Polynomials are continuous everywhere(-,+) Rational, root, trig, inverse trig, exponential, logarithmic functions are continuous where defined( every number) in its domain

New cards

19

The Intermediate Value Therem(IVT)

Condition 1: Must be Continuous. 2: N must be between the intervals. 3: That function values don’t equal. To prove the function continuous at the interval.

Tangent Line Equation

Y=Mx+b ( just find value of m through formulas and solve for b using the points for x and y.

New cards

22

Position and Velocity

S(t)= S( t2)-S(t1)/ t2-t1 : Distance/ time

New cards

23

Instantaneous Velocity

S’(t)=v(t)

Theorem

If f is differentiable at a, then f is continuous at a. NOT! The other way around
