Ok, so it's my first semester of Calculus and I'm completely lost. My professor is this old Korean guy who doesn't speak English and I'm in desperate need of some understanding.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. |X| = {x if x >= 0 and -x if x <0

lim x->a |X| Does not exists.

My first question is can the limit of an absolute value function ever exists? I understand the mechanics, just not the concept :(.

2. The Squeeze Theorem

If f(X) <= h(X) <= h(x) when x is near a (except possibly at a) and

lim x->a f(X) = lim x->A h(X) = L

then

lim x->a g(X) = L

Question: Prove that lim x->0+ suareroot(X)[1 + sin^2(2PI/X)] = 0.

Sorry for my semi-broken representation. It's a mixture of C++ sytanx and algebra... I don't think it works so well but I hope it can be understood. Anyway, I don't even know where to begin setting up the proof...

Anyone have an tips that might help? I'm going to search the net and try and find something that can help.
