Hi all.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm doing some self studying on limits, and...I have the following problem with this problem...

Prove: If [tex]f(x)>0[/tex] for all [tex]x[/tex], then [tex]\lim_{x\rightarrow x_o} f(x)\geq 0[/tex] for any [tex]x_o[/tex]

I'm assuming the best way to prove this is through contradiction:

Assume [tex]\lim_{x\rightarrow x_o} f(x) = A < 0[/tex]

This as far I get before vapor lock sets in. I guess I need to find an appropriate [tex]\epsilon[/tex] and then try to show/not show that [tex]f(x) < 0[/tex] for at least one [tex]x[/tex].

Can someone please point me on the right direction?

Thanks,

dogma
