Federal income tax The following table shows part of the April 15, 2015, tax rate schedule for single filers. Use this schedule and create a table of values that could be used to find the following limits, if they exist. Let x represent the amount of taxable income, and let T ( x ) represent the tax due.

(a) lim x 36 , 900 T ( x )

(b) lim x 36 , 900 + T ( x )

(c) lim x 36 , 900 T ( x )

Single Filers

If taxable income is over— But not over— The tax is:
$0 $9075 10% of the amount over $0
$9075 $36,900 $907.50 plus 15% of the amount over 9075
$36,900 $89,350 $5081.25 plus 25% of the amount over 36,900
$89,350 $186,350 $18,193.75 plus 28% of the amount over 89,350

If taxable income is over But not over The tax is
$0 $9075 10% of the amount over $0
$9075 $36,900 $907.50 plus 15% of the amount over 9075

$89,350 $186,350 $18,193.75 plus 28% of the amount over 89,350
Explanation

Given information:

The provided limit is limx36,900T(x), x denotes the amount of taxable income and T(x) denotes the due tax. The provided table is below.

Single Filers
If taxable income is over But not over The tax is
$0 $9075 10% of the amount over $0
$9075 $36,900 $907.50 plus 15% of the amount over 9075
$36,900 $89,350 $5081.25 plus 25% of the amount over 36,900
$89,350 $186,350 $18,193.75 plus 28% of the amount over 89,350

Formula used:

For a polynomial function f(x)=anxn+an1xn1++a1x+a0 where an0 and n is a positive integer,

limxcf(x)=f(c)

This is defined for all values of c.

Calculation:

Consider the provided limit,

limx36,900T(x)

Now consider the provided table and x denotes the amount of taxable income and T(x) denotes the due tax.

To find the limit of limx36,900T(x), first create a table by the use of provided table as.

Single Filers
If taxable income is over But not over Due tax
$0 $9075 10%x
$9075 $36,900 $907.50+15%(x9075)
$36,900 $89,350 $5081

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The value of the limit limx36,900+T(x) by the use of a table that could be created by the provided table below.

Single Filers

$36,900 $89,350 $5081.25 plus 25% of the amount over 36,900
$89,350 $186,350 $18,193.75 plus 28% of the amount over 89,350

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The value of the limit limx36,900T(x) by the use of a table that could be created by the provided table below.
