Formulas and Theorems
1a. Definition of Limit: Let f be a function defined on an open interval containing c (except
possibly at c ) and let L be a real number. Then lim f ( x ) = L means that for each ε > 0 there
x→a
exists a δ > 0 such that f ( x ) − L < ε whenever 0 < x − c < δ .
1b. A function y = f (x ) is continuous at x = a if
i). f(a) exists
ii). lim f ( x) exists
x→a
iii). lim = f (a)
x→a
4. Intermediate-Value Theorem
[ ]
A function y = f (x ) that is continuous on a closed interval a, b takes on every value
between f ( a ) and f (b) .
[ ]
Note: If f is continuous on a, b and f (a ) and f (b) differ in sign, then the equation
f ( x) = 0 has at least one solution in the open interval (a,b) .
5. Limits of Rational Functions as x → ±∞
f ( x)
i). lim = 0 if the degree of f ( x) < the degree of g ( x)
x → ±∞ g ( x)
x 2 − 2x
Example: lim =0
x → ∞ x3 + 3
f ( x)
ii). lim is infinite if the degrees of f ( x ) > the degree of g ( x )
x → ±∞ g ( x )

x3 + 2x
Example: lim =∞
x → ∞ x2 − 8
f ( x)
iii). lim is finite if the degree of f ( x ) = the degree of g ( x )
x → ±∞ g ( x )

2 x 2 − 3x + 2 2
Example: lim =−
x → ∞ 10 x − 5 x 2 5

6. Average and Instantaneous Rate of Change


i). Average Rate of Change: If x , y ( 0 0 ) and (x1, y1 ) are points on the graph of
y = f ( x) , then the average rate of change of y with respect to x over the interval

[x0 , x1 ] is f ( x1 ) − f ( x0 ) = y1 − y 0 = ∆y .
x1 − x0 x1 − x0 ∆x
ii). Instantaneous Rate of Change: If ( x 0 , y 0 ) is a point on the graph of y = f ( x ) , then
the instantaneous rate of change of y with respect to x at x 0 is f ′( x 0 ) .
f ( x + h) − f ( x )
7. f ′( x) = lim
h→0 h

 n 
ii). lim 1 +  n = e

9. Rolle’s Theorem
[ ]
If f is continuous on a, b and differentiable on (a, b ) such that
f (a) = f (b) , then there
is at least one number c in the open interval (a, b ) such that f ′(c) = 0 .
10. Mean Value Theorem
[ ]
If f is continuous on a, b and differentiable on (a, b ) , then there is at least one number c
f (b) − f (a)
in (a, b ) such that = f ′(c) .
b−a
11. Extreme-Value Theorem
[ ]
If f is continuous on a closed interval a, b , then f (x ) has both a maximum and minimum
[ ]
on a, b .
12. To find the maximum and minimum values of a function y = f (x ) , locate
1. the points where f ′(x ) is zero or where f ′(x ) fails to exist.
2. the end points, if any, on the domain of f (x ) .
Note: These are the only candidates for the value of x where f (x ) may have a maximum or a
minimum.
13. Let f be differentiable for a < x < b and continuous for a a ≤ x ≤ b ,
1. If f ′( x ) > 0 for every x in (a, b ) , [ ]
then f is increasing on a, b .
2. If f ′( x ) < 0 for every x in (a, b ) , then f is decreasing on [a, b ] .
