Student[Calculus1][LimitTutor] - solve a limit problem step-by-step

 Calling Sequence LimitTutor(f, a, dir) LimitTutor(f, var=a, dir)

Parameters

 f - (optional) algebraic expression in one variable var a - (optional) point dir - (optional) direction var - (optional) variable

Description

 • The LimitTutor(f) command launches a tutor interface that solves the limit of f with respect to var, at the point a from the direction dir, step-by-step. If f is either an expression of the form Limit(g, ...) or a call limit(g, ...) that Maple returns unevaluated, the tutor finds the limit of g.
 If f is not specified, LimitTutor uses a default function.
 If a is not specified, LimitTutor uses a default point.
 If dir is not specified, LimitTutor uses a default direction.
 • When the tutor is closed, the solution steps displayed in the tutor are re-displayed in the worksheet, with annotations showing the rules applied.  Note that this a display only and is not a value which can be further manipulated from within the worksheet.  The value returned from the tutor, which can be used (for example, by referencing its equation label), is the state of the problem at the time the tutor was closed.
