Student[Precalculus][LimitTutor] - examine limiting behavior of the values of a function, as the indeterminate approaches a point

 Calling Sequence LimitTutor(f, pt)

Parameters

 f - (optional) algebraic expression in at most one variable pt - (optional) constant, or expression of the form name=constant, where name is the indeterminate in f. The default is 0

Description

 • The LimitTutor(f) command launches a tutor interface that examines the limiting behavior of the curve f as the indeterminate approaches the point 0.
 If f is not specified, LimitTutor uses a default function.
 • The LimitTutor(f, pt) command launches a tutor interface that examines the limiting behavior of the curve f as the indeterminate approaches the point pt.
 • If an expression in one variable is specified, the tutor replaces the variable name with x.
 • The tutor interface can examine the limiting behavior of the curve f as the indeterminate approaches from the left, right, or both directions.
