Homework Help: Simply limit question

  1. Oct 13, 2006 #1
    This question doesn't apply to any question I am working on, I am just trying to jog my memory.

    If we are evaluating a limit and get the limit as x approaches 0 is 35/0 (for example!), the limit is still undefined correct? For some reason my mind is telling me it represents infinity... but I don't think this is right. lol.

    the limit is [tex] \infty [/tex], because you never actually hit 0. btw, are you m or f?

    Limit question

    Find the coordinates of the point on the curve f(x)=3x^2-4x, where the tangent is parallel to the line y=8x.


    Ok i know the slope of the tangent is 8.

    and i know the formula is m=[f(a+h)-f(a)]/h

    i need a hint please
