Find the limit , if it exists, :

x3 y
lim ( x , y ) (0,0) 2 2
x +y

| || || |
3

x 2 x2 + y 2

x2
x2 | | | |
1
xy xy
2
2
2
2
x +y
x +y

so :

x y
x xy

x
= 2 2 = 2 2 |xy|= 2 2 |xy|
2
2
x +y
x +y
x +y
x +y

x3 y
|xy|
x2 + y2

and by taking the limits :


lim ( x , y ) (0,0)|xy|=|00|=0

| |

x3 y

x 2+ y 2
lim ( x , y ) (0,0 ) 0

lim ( x , y ) (0,0)

| |
3

x y
0
2
2
x +y
0

lim ( x , y ) (0,0)

Finally, by the Squeeze Theorem :

x3 y
=0
x 2+ y 2
x3 y
=0
x2 + y2

lim ( x , y ) (0,0)

lim (x , y ) (0,0)
