I googled and it gave me epsilon delta stuff. I'm not smart enough for that.

I guess I'm asking if anyone could give a dumbed down explanation of sorts.

Plus means approaching 3 from the right so 3.1, 3.01, 3.001 etc

I bet you can guess what minus means.

It isnt really a starting point. I was just emphasizing approaching from the right. We could start at 100 but the goal is to approach 3 and get really close to 3. Really close as in 3.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001Why did you start with 3.1?

That is true. You can have jump discontinuities or one side going to neg inf and the other to pos inf.Thanks. Did I read that sometimes [tex]\lim_{x \to a^{+}}f(x)[/tex] and [tex]\lim_{x \to a^{-}}f(x)[/tex] can be different? How's that?

Look at the Heaviside Function has an example
