Is it possible to calculate a limit of a piecewise function? - Mickpc - 10-12-2014 01:06 AM
I tried to enter a piecewise function into the limit function but it returns: Error: Bad Argument Value is it possible to work around this? Michael C RE: Is it possible to calculate a limit of a piecewise function? - Helge Gabert - 10-12-2014 04:36 PM
Possibly . . . give an example, that would help. RE: Is it possible to calculate a limit of a piecewise function? - Mickpc - 10-12-2014 09:46 PM
Sure: limit(PIECEWISE(x<1,1,x>1,0),x,1) However I entered it in using the templates. Thank you Michael C RE: Is it possible to calculate a limit of a piecewise function? - Helge Gabert - 10-12-2014 11:53 PM
Doesn't work for me, either. However, if you put in a default condition at the end, like piecewise(x<1,1,x>1,0,9) all limits get computed from the left limit x ->1^-1 returns 1 from the right limit x ->1^1 returns 0 from both sides limit x -> 1^0 returns "unidirectional limits are distincts [sic]".
