KEY CONCEPTS (LIMIT) THINGS TO REMEMBER : 1. Limit of a function f(x) is said to exist as, x→a when Lim f (x) = Lim f (x) = finite quantity.

FUNDAMENTAL THEOREMS ON LIMITS: Let Lim f (x) = l & Lim g (x) = m. If l & m exists then : x →a

x →a

REMEMBER

(ii) Lim f(x). g(x) = l. m

(i)

Lim f (x) ± g (x) = l ± m

(iii)

f (x ) l Lim = , provided m ≠ 0 x →a g(g ) m

(iv)

Lim k f(x) = k Lim f(x) ; where k is a constant.

(v)

  Lim f [g(x)] = f  Lim g( x )  = f (m) ; provided f is continuous at g (x) = m.  x →a  x →a

Note : (i) We cannot plot ∞ on the paper. Infinity (∞) is a symbol & not a number. It does not obey the laws of elementry algebra. (ii) ∞+∞=∞ (iii) ∞ × ∞ = ∞ (iv) (a/∞) = 0 if a is finite a (v) is not defined , if a ≠ 0. 0 (vi) a b = 0 , if & only if a = 0 or b = 0 and a & b are finite. The following strategies should be born in mind for evaluating the limits: Factorisation Rationalisation or double rationalisation Use of trigonometric transformation ; appropriate substitution and using standard limits Expansion of function like Binomial expansion, exponential & logarithmic expansion, expansion of sinx , cosx , tanx should be remembered by heart & are given below :

KEY CONCEPTS (CONTINUITY) THINGS TO REMEMBER : 1. A function f(x) is said to be continuous at x = c, if Limit f(x) = f(c). Symbolically x →c f is continuous at x = c if Limit f(c - h) = Limit f(c+h) = f(c). h →0

h →0

i.e. LHL at x = c = RHL at x = c equals Value of ‘f’ at x = c. It should be noted that continuity of a function at x = a is meaningful only if the function is defined in the immediate neighbourhood of x = a, not necessarily at x = a. 2. (i)

Reasons of discontinuity: Limit f(x) does not exist x →c

i.e. Limit− f(x) ≠ Limit f (x) + x →c

(ii) (iii)

x →c

f(x) is not defined at x= c Limit f(x) ≠ f (c) x →c

Geometrically, the graph of the function will exhibit a break at x= c. The graph as shown is discontinuous at x = 1 , 2 and 3. 3. Types of Discontinuities : Type - 1: ( Removable type of discontinuities) In case Limit f(x) exists but is not equal to f(c) then the function is said to have a removable discontinuity x →c

or discontinuity of the first kind. In this case we can redefine the function such that Limit f(x) = f(c) & x →c

make it continuous at x= c. Removable type of discontinuity can be further classified as : (a)

MISSING POINT DISCONTINUITY : Where Limit f(x) exists finitely but f(a) is not defined. x →a

sin x (1 − x )(9 − x 2 ) e.g. f(x) = has a missing point discontinuity at x = 1 , and f(x) = has a missing point x (1 − x ) discontinuity at x = 0

(b)

ISOLATED POINT DISCONTINUITY : Where Limit f(x) exists & f(a) also exists but ; Limit ≠ f(a). x →a

x 2 − 16 e.g. f(x) = , x ≠ 4 & f (4) = 9 has an isolated point discontinuity at x = 4. x−4

x →a

0 if x ∈ I  Similarly f(x) = [x] + [ –x] =  has an isolated point discontinuity at all x ∈ I.  −1 if x ∉ I

Type-2: ( Non - Removable type of discontinuities) In case Limit f(x) does not exist then it is not possible to make the function continuous by redefining it. x →c

Such discontinuities are known as non - removable discontinuity or discontinuity of the 2nd kind. Non-removable type of discontinuity can be further classified as : (a)

Finite discontinuity e.g. f(x) = x − [x] at all integral x ; f(x) = tan −1 ( note that f(0+) = 0 ; f(0–) = 1 )

(b)

(c)

1 at x = 0 and f(x) = x

1 1 1+ 2 x

at x = 0

π cosx 1 tanx at x = Infinite discontinuity e.g. f(x) = 1 or g(x) = at x = 4 ; f(x) = 2 and f(x) = 2 x ( x − 4) 2 x−4 at x = 0. Oscillatory discontinuity e.g. f(x) = sin 1 at x = 0. x ETOOS Academy Pvt. Ltd. : F-106, Road No. 2, Indraprastha Industrial Area, End of Evergreen Motors 8 (Mahindra Showroom), BSNL Office Lane, Jhalawar Road, Kota, Rajasthan (324005)

In all these cases the value of f(a) of the function at x= a (point of discontinuity) may or may not exist but Limit does not exist. x →a

Note: From the adjacent graph note that – f is continuous at x = – 1 – f has isolated discontinuity at x = 1 – f has missing point discontinuity at x = 2 – f has non removable (finite type) discontinuity at the origin. 4.

In case of dis-continuity of the second kind the non-negative difference between the value of the RHL at x = c & LHL at x = c is called THE JUMP OF DISCONTINUITY. A function having a finite number of jumps in a given interval I is called a PIECE WISE CONTINUOUS or SECTIONALLY CONTINUOUS function in this interval.

5.

All Polynomials, Trigonometrical functions, exponential & Logarithmic functions are continuous in their domains.

6.

If f & g are two functions that are continuous at x= c then the functions defined by : F1(x) = f(x) ± g(x); F2(x) = K f(x), K any real number; F3(x) = f(x).g(x) are also continuous at x= c. Further, if g (c) is not zero, then F4(x) =

7.

f (x) is also continuous at x= c. g(x)

The intermediate value theorem: Suppose f(x) is continuous on an interval I , and a and b are any two points of I. Then if y0 is a number between f(a) and f(b) , their exists a number c between a and b such that f(c) = y0.

The function f, being continuous on [a,b) takes on every value between f(a) and f(b)

NOTE VERY CAREFULLY THAT : (a) If f(x) is continuous & g(x) is discontinuous at x = a then the product function φ(x) = f(x). g(x) is not necessarily be discontinuous at x = a. e.g. sin πx

f(x) = x & g(x) = 

0

(b)

x≠0 x=0

If f(x) and g(x) both are discontinuous at x = a then the product function φ(x) = f(x). g(x) is not necessarily be discontinuous at x = a. e.g.  1
