Limits Involving Infinity
Graphically

What is happening in the graph below?
Graphically
We can make the following statements:
lim  f ( x )  
x 0
lim  f ( x )  
x 0
ALSO:
lim
x  
 lim f ( x ) DNE
x 0
f ( x)  0
lim f ( x )  0
x 
Vertical Asymptotes

When do vertical asymptotes occur
algebraically?
Denominator = 0
 (a function is undefined…this includes trig
functions)


Using Limits:
A vertical asymptote of x = a exists for a function if
lim  f ( x )  
x a
OR
lim  f ( x )  
x a
Horizontal Asymptotes

A horizontal asymptote of y = b exists if
lim
x  
f ( x)  b
OR lim f ( x )  b
x 
Example:
Identify all horizontal and vertical asymptotes of
f ( x) 

Special Limits
Example:

x
If we substitute in ∞, sin ∞ oscillates between -1 and 1, so
we must find another way to show this limit algebraically.

Limits Involving ±∞

The same properties of adding,
subtracting, multiplying, dividing, constant
multiplying, and using powers for limit also
apply to limits involving infinity. (see pg.
71)
End Behavior

We sometimes want to how the ends of
functions are behaving.
◦ We can use much simpler functions to discuss
end behavior than a complicated one that may
be given.
◦ To look at end behavior, we must use limits
involving infinity.
End Behavior
A function g is an end behavior model for f
if and only if
lim
x  
f ( x)
1
g ( x)
Right-end behavior model when x +∞
Left-end behavior model when x -∞
End Behavior

Show that g(x) = 3x4 is an end behavior
model for
f(x) = 3x4 – 2x3 + 3x2 – 5x + 6.

Notice when x is ∞,
e∞ goes to 0.
If we use a function of g(x) = x in the denominator,

we get

Finding End Behavior Models
Find a left end behavior model for the
function f(x) = x + ex
lim
xe
x  
?
x
1
Notice when x is ∞,
ex goes to ∞ and x
goes to –∞.
Which one has more effect on the left-end of
the function? (Which one gets to ∞ faster?)
Therefore, use e–x as a left-end behavior model
for f(x).
