# Guess the value of the limit lim x → ∞ x 2 2 x by evaluating the function f(x) = x2/2x for x = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 50, and 100. Then use a graph of f to support your guess.

To determine

To evaluate: The value of limxx22x for the function f(x)=x22x for the values

x=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,20,50 and 100.

Explanation
