A company that manufactures computers has established that, on the average, anew employee can assemble N (t ) components per day after t days of on-the-job training, as given by N (t ) = 50t t +4 t ≥ 0.

Sketch a graph of N , 0 ≤ t ≤ 100, including any vertical or horizontal asymptotes. What does N (t ) approach as t increases without bound?

The limit of f (x ) as x approaches a is L. written as x →c lim f (x ) = L if given any > 0.

In fact. Note: The existence of a limit at c ahs nothing to do with the value of the function at c . (UP Baguio) Masters Thesis Defense April 17. c may not even be in the domain of f .Deﬁnition (informal) We write x →c lim = L or f (x ) → L as x → c if the functional value f (x ) is close to the single real number L whenever x is close. but not equal. the function must be deﬁned on both sides of c . to c (on either side of c ).
