(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For the limit

lim

x → 2 (x^3 − 3x + 5) = 7

illustrate the definition by finding the largest possible values of δ that correspond to ε = 0.2 and ε = 0.1. (Round your answers to four decimal places.)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I've gotten x^3-3x=2.2, but I'm lost after that. My teacher gave a terrible description on what to do, and the book is of no help whatsoever.
