 P: 196 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given a function $$f:R\rightarrow R$$ and a number L,write down a definition of the statement $$\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}f(x)=L$$ 3. The attempt at a solution Is it just $$\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}f(x)=\lim_{x\rightarrow\infty}f(-x)$$ ? and definition is for $$\forall \epsilon>0$$ $$\exists N$$ such that $$\forall n>N$$ we have $$|f(-x)-L|<\epsilon$$
 Math Emeritus Sci Advisor Thanks PF Gold P: 39,564 Definition of a Limit. A more "standard" definition of $$\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}f(x)=L$$ would be: "Given $\epsilon> 0$, there exist N such that if x< N, then $|f(x)-L|<\epsilon$." Notice that in neither this definition nor your definition is N required to be an integer.
