**Question:1 **Evaluate the following limits

Answer

**Question:6** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit

Lets put

since we have changed the function, its limit will also change,

so

So our function have became

Now As we know the property

Hence,

**Question:8** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit

At x = 2 both numerator and denominator becomes zero, so lets factorise the function

Now we can put the limit directly, so

**Question:10** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit

Here on directly putting limit , both numerator and the deniminator becomes zero so we factorize the function and then put the limit.

**(Answer)**

**Question:11** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit:

Since Denominator is not zero on directly putting the limit, we can directly put the limits, so,

**(Answer)**

**Question:12** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

Here, since denominator becomes zero on putting the limit directly, so we first simplify the function and then put the limit,

**(Answer)**

**Question:13** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit

Here on directly putting the limits, the function becomes form. so we try to make the function in the form of . so,

As

**(Answer)**

**Question:14** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit,

On putting the limit directly, the function takes the zero by zero form So,we convert it in the form of .and then put the limit,

**(Answer)**

**Question:16** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit

the function behaves well on directly putting the limit,so we put the limit directly. So.

**(Answer)**

**Question:17** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The limit:

The function takes the zero by zero form when the limit is put directly, so we simplify the function and then put the limit

**(Answer)**

**Question:18** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

The function takes the form zero by zero when we put the limit directly in the function,. since function consist of sin function and cos function, we try to make the function in the form of as we know that it tends to 1 when x tends to 0.

So,

**(Answer)**

**Question:19** Evaluate the following limits

**Answer:**

As function doesn't create any abnormality on putting the limit directly,we can put limit directly. So,

. **(Answer)**

**Question:20** Evaluate the following limits

**(Answer)**

**Question:23** Find

**Answer:**

Given Function

Now,

Limit at x = 0 :

:

Hence limit at x = 0 is 3.

Limit at x = 1

Hence limit at x = 1 is 6.

**Question:24 **Find

**Answer:**

Limit at

Limit at

As we can see that Limit at is not equal to Limit at ,The limit of this function at x = 1 does not exists.

**Question:25** Evaluate

**Answer:**

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Since Left-hand limit and right-hand limit are not equal, The limit of this function at x = 0 does not exists.

**Question:26 **Evaluate ** **

**Answer:**

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Since Left-hand limit and right-hand limit are not equal, The limit of this function at x = 0 does not exists.

**Question:27** Find

**Answer:**

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Since Left-hand limit and right-hand limit are equal, The limit of this function at x = 5 is 0.

**Question:28** Suppose

f (x) = f (1) what are possible values of a and b?

**Answer:**

Given,

And

Since the limit exists,

left-hand limit = Right-hand limit = f(1).

Left-hand limit = f(1)

Right-hand limit

From both equations, we get that,

and

Hence the possible value of a and b are 0 and 4 respectively.

**Question:29 **Let a1, a2, . . ., an be fixed real numbers and define a function What is f (x) ? For some , compute l

**Answer:**

Given,

Now,

Hence

,

Now,

Hence

.

**Question:30 **If For what value (s) of a does exists ?

**Answer:**

Limit at x = a exists when the right-hand limit is equal to the left-hand limit. So,

Case 1: when a = 0

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Since Left-hand limit and right-hand limit are not equal, The limit of this function at x = 0 does not exists.

Case 2: When a < 0

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Since LHL = RHL, Limit exists at x = a and is equal to a-1.

Case 3: When a > 0

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Since LHL = RHL, Limit exists at x = a and is equal to a+1

Hence,

The limit exists at all points except at x=0.

**Question:32** If

. For what integers m and n does both exist ?

**Answer:**

Given,

Case 1: Limit at x = 0

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Hence Limit will exist at x = 0 when m = n .

Case 2: Limit at x = 1

The right-hand Limit or Limit at

The left-hand limit or Limit at

Hence Limit at 1 exists at all integers.

**Some important points and formulas from NCERT solutions for class 11 maths chapter 13 limits and derivatives which you should remember-**

- Limit of a function(f) at a point is the common value of the left-hand limits and right-hand limits if they coincide.
- For a function 'f' and a real number 'a'. and may not be the same (One may be defined and not the other one).
- For functions 'f' and 'g' the following properties holds:

- Some of the standard limits are-

- The derivative of a function 'f' at 'a' is defined by-

- The derivative of a function 'f' at any point 'x' is defined by-

Tip- Limit is more on the theory-based so you should understand every theorem and try to solve questions based on the theorem. Derivatives required more practice of problems. There are 30 questions in the miscellaneous exercise. You should solve miscellaneous exercise also to get command on this chapter with the help of CBSE NCERT solutions for class 11 maths chapter 13 limits and derivatives.
