To the left of 0, f(x) is identical to x. Do you know how to do [itex]lim_{x\rightarrow 0} x[/itex]? If so, that is exactly [itex]lim_{x\rightarrow 0^-} f(x)[/itex].

Just to the right of 0, f(x) is identical to x2 and so the "limit from the right", [itex]\lim_{x\rightarrow 0^+} f(x)[/itex] is the same as [itex]\lim_{x\rightarrow 0} x^2[/itex].
