What is the limit of 1/x as x approaches 0. Is it infinity?

Well, that is correct because the left-limit is not equal to the right limit. In deed the function y = 0 is the vertical asypmtote of this given function. The left limit is the negative infinity and the right limit is the positive infinity. One can prove this by making a sign chart of the function 1/X
