## Function lim

The calculator provides function lim to calculate limits of functions. This function
uses as input an expression representing a function and the value where the
limit is to be calculated. Function lim is available through the command
catalog (‚N~„l) or through option 2. LIMITS & SERIES... of the
Note: The functions available in the LIMITS & SERIES menu are shown next:
Function DIVPC is used to divide two polynomials producing a series
expansion. Functions DIVPC, SERIES, TAYLOR0, and TAYLOR are used in series
expansions of functions and discussed in more detail in this Chapter.
Function lim is entered in ALG mode as lim(f(x),x=a) to calculate the
