Okay for a simple finite limit: e.g.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

lim (3x) = 3

x->1

in the end I say:

"Therefore for every |x - 3| < delta, there exists an epsilon such that |3x-3| < epsilon"

Hence I can make delta really really small and the y bounds of epsilon will constrain the limit.

So lets come to the example I saw in an article

lim (SQRT(x)) = INF

x-INF

Okay so:

x > N - x is greater than any positive integer

Match N with M^2

x > M^2

SQRT(x) > M

Okay so how will I make my statement?
