# Limits: A special case

### NATURE.M

Consider the following
lim f(f(x))
x->-2

When looking at the graph of a function, if the function approaches -2 from above on the right
side, and approaches -2 from below on the left side, does the limit exist? I've been told it doesn't, but I don't understand why.

You need to specify what your function is.
If f(x)=x, for example, the limit certainly exists.

Only the graph is given.

I guess you could suppose this is a similar graph.

Then lim f(x) (lets suppose)
x->1

Since the function approaches from above on the right side , and below on the left side, does the limit exist??
