Finding lim f(x) as x-->+/- infinity?
f(x)= x^(5/3)-5x^(2/3)
Need to find limit f(x) as x-->+infinity, and x-->-infinity?
f(x)= x^(5/3)-5x^(2/3)
Need to find limit f(x) as x-->+infinity, and x-->-infinity?
"lim" stands for "limit," which is a mathematical concept that describes the behavior of a function as its input approaches a particular value or direction.
"f(x)" represents a function, where "x" is the input or independent variable, and "f(x)" is the output or dependent variable.
"x->+/- infinity" represents the direction in which the input "x" is approaching infinity, either from the positive or negative direction.
To find the limit of a function as its input approaches infinity, you can evaluate the function at larger and larger values of "x" and observe the pattern of its outputs. If the outputs are approaching a specific value, then that value is the limit of the function as "x" approaches infinity.
Finding the limit of a function as its input approaches infinity can help us understand the long-term behavior of the function and make predictions about its outputs at extremely large inputs. It also allows us to determine if a function has a horizontal asymptote, which is a line that the function approaches as "x" approaches infinity.
