Sqareroot limit proof

  1. Sep 25, 2007 #1
    square root limit proof

    R is the real nmbers

    so let A be in R
    let f: A -> R be such that f(x)>0 for all x in A
    c is in A

    Does any one know the proof to or even get me started on this proof shown below

    [It's hard to write roots on the computer, so I will use the 1/2-th power instead.] SO i want to prove the following

    lim x ->c [f(x)^(1/2)] = [lim x->c f(x)]^(1/2),
    PROVIDED f(x) > 0

    Use the continuity of the square root and the definition of limit.

    In other words, this function, f, has very little to do with the question. The definition of "h(x) is continuous at x=a" is lim(x->a) f(x)= f(a). In this case, what is a?
