# Laws of Limit

Top

To understand Limit in Calculus we need to learn various Laws of Limit. Limits have several different types of laws the very first law is constant law.

Constant law: Suppose we have f(x) =b (where f is constant for all x) then the limits as 'x' approaches 'c' must be equal to b.

: If b and c are constant: lim x→c b =b

Identity rule: According to this law, if f(x) =x, then the limit of f as x approaches c is equal to c.

If c is a constant: lim x→c x =c.

Special law of Operational Identities: Ø Suppose we have lim x→c f(x) =L and lim x→c g(x) =M and k is constant then the limit is,

Constant multiple law: lim x→c kf(x) = k. lim x→c f(x) =kL

Addition law: lim x→c [f(x) +g(x)] = lim x→c f(x) + lim x→c g(x) =L+M

Difference Law: lim x→c [f(x) -g(x)] = lim x→c f(x) - lim x→c g(x) =L-M

Product Law: lim x→c [f(x)g(x)] = lim x→c f(x) lim x→c g(x) =LM

Quotient law: lim x→c [f(x) /g(x)] = lim x→c f(x) / lim x→c g(x) =L/M (where M is not equal to zero.)

This is a brief definition of the laws of limits.
