definition of the limit?
 Formulas for NDimensional Spheres [10/26/2000]

What is the next term in the sequence pi*r^2, (4/3)pi*r^3, ...? Would it

finite number of elementary functions?

 Indeterminate Forms [04/23/2001]

Concerning the indeterminate forms such as 0/0 and infinity/infinity, why
is one to the infinite power considered an indeterminate form?
 Induction on .999... [10/19/2000]

In the FAQ proof that .999... = 1, how can you multiply .999... by 10 if
you can never get to the furthest right value? Can you show me an
induction proof that this works?
 Infinite Series Involving Arithmetic and Geometric Means [11/27/2003]

Start with two numbers, find their arithmetic and geometric means,
then find the means of the two results and continue this process
indefinitely. Does the series converge?
 Infinity Minus Infinity [10/23/1998]

What would you get if you subtracted infinity from infinity? Would it not
be the same as x minus x?
 The Intermediate Value Theorem [09/14/1998]

Can you explain the Intermediate Value Theorem? How does it fail with
this example: f(x) = 1/(x3) + 2?
 Intermediate Value Theorem [09/19/2002]

How can we prove by the intermediate value theorem that there is a
point on the path that a hiker will cross at exactly the same time of
the day hiking up and returning?
 Is 0.99 Periodical Equal to 1? [4/25/1995]

Today I had a discussion with my colleagues about whether 0.99...
periodically is the same value as 1. My statement is....
 Is a Ratio Rational or Irrational? [8/2/1996]

Is there any way by which we could ascertain the irrationality of a ratio
(eg. 4/1, 22/7) without actually resorting to division?
 Is the Number Line Both Continuous and Porous? [05/13/2005]

The number line is said to be densely populated because between any
two numbers are infinite other numbers. But aren't there also an
infinite number of gaps in the number line, with a tiny gap on either
side of each of those discrete infinite numbers?
 Leftmost Digits of 2^n [11/01/2002]

Prove that there is a power of 2 whose decimal representation starts
with the digits 1999.
 Limit Evaluation [7/7/1996]

How do I solve the limit of the xth root of x, x > infinity?

Can you explain the intuition behind the formal definition of a limit?
derive the equation of the tangent line of a function at a given point?
 The Limit of Sin(1/x) [10/02/1998]

Why does the sine of 1/x have no limit as x approaches 0?
 Limit of x sin(1/x) [04/23/2002]

I assumed from the graph that the function had a limit at x=0 of 0,
but since it involves sin(1/0) I can not prove this using the basic
trigonometric limits (sin x/x and (1cos x)/x), L'Hopital's
rule, or by rearranging the equation. Can you help?

that...

Can you help us find the limit of x (ln x)^n as x goes to infinity, for
all n? Do we use L'Hopital's Rule?
 Math Analysis [09/13/1997]

I have to figure out the boundaries for the inequality...
 Meaning of R++ [9/12/1996]

What do the symbols R_{+} and R_{++} mean?
