Homework Help: Properties of limits

  1. Nov 10, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If lim f(x) as x->5 = -1/2 and lim g(x) as x->5 = 4
    find lim [f(x)-g(x)] as x->5

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    My question:

    Am I supposed to substitute f(x) by -1/2 and g(x) by 4 and have [-1/2 - 4]?
