Not quite, although you started correctly. The limit in this case is as $x\to\infty$, so you want to see what happens when $x$ gets large. This means...

Hi Goody, and welcome to MHB! To prove that \lim_{x\to\infty}\frac{x-1}{x+2} = 1, you have to show that, given $\varepsilon > 0$, you can find $N$...

Let's take a look at a couple of examples. If $f(x)=x$, then $f'(x)=1$ and $f''(x)=0$. So $\lim\limits_{x\to +\infty}f'(x)\ne 0$, isn't it?...

Then the inequality also holds yes. What if fill in, say, $f'(y)=-1$ in the inequality? Would it satisfy it? (Wondering)

That is a possibility yes. What happens if $f'(y)$ is negative? (Wondering)

We have an expression with $f(y)$, $f'(y)$, and $\ell$. And we already know that $\ell\in\mathbb R$, don't we? So it can't be $\pm\infty$ either. ...

You also have an arithmetic error.

1. Hello and welcome back to MHB, Fantini!

We are happy to see that you have returned, and we look forward to your continued participation here!

On Behalf Of MHB's Staff,

Ackbach.
2. Thanks Fantini
3. Haha. \widehat's cool. Also check out \widetilde. But these sometimes get ugly.
4. Yep. Corrected now.
5. Thanks for the thanks. For what it's worth, I have already let Jameson know that an option to turn off or disable the social media buttons would be a good idea in my opinion.
6. Hey, good catch...that is in fact what I meant to type, but my darn keyboard seems to have a mind of its own at times. Thanks for letting me know so I could fix it.
7. Yes thanks Fantini, edited
8. Not at all...it's GOOD to think about these things.
9. Fantini, have I seen you on SE before?
10. Fantini - Hey, thanks! Yeah, the colors go well together, I think. Bach was the greatest!
