PM5006 Differential Calculus Group______ Prof: Carlos Vázquez Castellanos September 25, 2012 Activity Name: _____________________ Number: _____________ Subject: Infinite Limits. Grade

Work on the following and answer the questions in this same document. Then, submit the document with your answers as indicated by your teacher. 1. Let us remember the following limit. You can use a graphing software to find this limit. Include the graph. a) = ___________________.

b)

= ___________________.

c)

= ___________________.

2. Now find the following limits. You can use a graphing software as in the pre-

vious question, and in the ones that follow as well. Include a graph in all of them. a) = ___________________.

b)

= ___________________.

c)

= ___________________.

3.Sketch the graph of the following function

a) What is the vertical asymptote? b) In your own words, explain how to find the vertical asymptote of a rational function like this one.

c) What is the horizontal asymptote? d) In your own words, explain how to find the vertical asymptote of a rational function like this one. Find the following limits e) = ___________________.

f)

= ___________________.

g)

= ___________________.

4. Sketch the graph of the following function

a) What is the vertical asymptote? b) In your own words, explain how to find the vertical asymptote of a rational function like this one. c) What is the horizontal asymptote? d) In your own words, explain how to find the vertical asymptote of a rational function like this one. Find the following limits e) = ___________________.

f)

= ___________________.

g)

= ___________________.

5.Let

Find

and

for each a at which f is not continuous.

6.In the partial exam, you will have to sketch the graphs of rational functions by hand in order to find this kind of limits. What steps would you follow to sketch the graph of rational functions? Here, I have already started this for you: 1.Find and sketch the vertical asymptote. 2.Find and sketch the horizontal asymptote.

7.Summary Please, make sure to include the following in your notes. It is a summary of what you already did. Besides, it will be included in the next partial exam ;-)
