1. Homework Statement
Prove: If the Lim as x goes to a of F(x)=infinity, then lim as x goes to a of 1/F(x)=0


2. Homework Equations

We have only gone over limits and continuity using delta epsilion proofs.

what have you tried? this is straightforward in the sense that it follows from the definitions

show us what you have tried

Since the limit is equal to infinity I took an M greater than zero such that X>M implies |F(x)-L| is less than epsilon but I get confused with the one over F(x)=0

am I on the right track? I am really confused!

this is wrong, lim x->a F(x) = inf means for all M > 0 there is a d > 0 s.t. |x-a| < d implies |F(x)| > M. (you can actually drop the absolute value sign here but i'll leave it)

ok I understand this definition but how does that help me get lim as x goes to a of 1/f(x)=0? This definition will help me prove another one I was having trouble with. thank you.
