## Main Question or Discussion Point

If for every number E>0, there exists a corresponding number D>0 such that for all x

|x-x0|<D >> |f(x)-L|<E

Then L is a limit

what is precisely mean of "corresponding number"?

and how can that "correspondance" assure me that the limit exists?

how can a number be corresponding to another number?

I know how can a number be equal/less than/greater than a number, but how can it be corresponding to another number?

I think I understand the definition now, except this "essential?" part
