True or False. In the following exercises, justify your answer with a proof or a counterexample.

208.

A function has to be continuous at x=ax=a if the limxaf(x)limxaf(x) exists.

209.

You can use the quotient rule to evaluate limx0sinxx.limx0sinxx.

210.

If there is a vertical asymptote at x=ax=a for the function f(x),f(x), then f is undefined at the point x=a.x=a.

211.

If limxaf(x)limxaf(x) does not exist, then f is undefined at the point x=a.x=a.

212.

Using the graph, find each limit or explain why the limit does not exist.

  1. limx−1f(x)limx−1f(x)
  2. limx1f(x)limx1f(x)
  3. limx0+f(x)limx0+f(x)
  4. limx2f(x)limx2f(x)
A graph of a piecewise function with several segments. The first is a decreasing concave up curve existing for x < -1. It ends at an open circle at (-1, 1). The second is an increasing linear function starting at (-1, -2) and ending at (0,-1). The third is an increasing concave down curve existing from an open circle at (0,0) to an open circle at (1,1). The fourth is a closed circle at (1,-1). The fifth is a line with no slope existing for x > 1, starting at the open circle at (1,1).

In the following exercises, evaluate the limit algebraically or explain why the limit does not exist.

A ball is thrown into the air and the vertical position is given by x(t)=−4.9t2+25t+5.x(t)=−4.9t2+25t+5. Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to show that the ball must land on the ground sometime between 5 sec and 6 sec after the throw.

231.

A particle moving along a line has a displacement according to the function x(t)=t22t+4,x(t)=t22t+4, where x is measured in meters and t is measured in seconds. Find the average velocity over the time period t=[0,2].t=[0,2].

232.

From the previous exercises, estimate the instantaneous velocity at t=2t=2 by checking the average velocity within t=0.01sec.t=0.01sec.
