ssIn Problems 7-20, find each limit, if it exists. 17.   lim x → ∞ f ( x )  where  f ( x ) = { 4 − x 2   if  x < 1 4           if  x = 1 2 x + 1   if  x > 1 .

To determine

To calculate: The value of limx1f(x) for the function, f(x)={4x2   if x<14          if x=12x+1   if x>1.

Explanation

Given Information:

The limit is limx1f(x) and the provided function is f(x)={4x2   if x<14          if x=12x+1   if x>1.

Formula used:

A limit limxcx can be simplified as,

limxcx=c

Calculation:

Consider the provided limit,

limx1f(x)

The limit from the left is represented by limx1f(x) and the limit from the right is represented by limx1+f(x).

The limxcf(x) will exist at c=1 when the limit from the left, that is, the values of f(c) but c<1, is equal to the limit from the right, that is, the values of f(c) but c>1
