Hi,
I have a question about : http://imgur.com/RU7PvtJ I actually understand what I need to do. I need to see if both one sided limits are the same to establish that the limit exists. The only thing which I just find weird is the "since y > 2^() implies y<2" Can somebody explain me where this y > 2^() is coming from ??

It is just a notation to denote the lefthand limits. So
[tex]\lim_{x\rightarrow a^} f(x)[/tex] is the limit of ##f(x)## as ##x\rightarrow a## but ##x<a##.

But shouldn't we say : y > 2^() and not y > 2^() ???
