Homework Statement


Given that
lim f(x) = -4 and lim g(x) = 6
(All limits x --> +infinity)

Find the limit
lim [f(x) + 2g(x)]


Homework Equations



The Attempt at a Solution


So I substituted the values of f(x) and g(x) in the equation

=[(-4) + 2(6)
the limit is = 8

Did I do it right?

You should know from basic properties of limits that
1) For any constant A, as long as lim f(x) exists, then so does lim Af(x) and the limit is A(lim f(x)).
2) As long as lim f(x) and lim g(x) exist, then so does lim f(x)+ g(x) and the limit is lim f(x)+ lim g(x).

Those two together give the result you want.
