# Infinite Limit at a Finite Point

Infinite Limit at a Finite Point

In words, the definition of f(x)=∞ is that no matter how large is, you can find an interval of width + around (perhaps with and very small), so that will be larger than as long as is in that interval. This Demonstration computes the largest and for a given . You can adjust using the slider. The values for and may be found automatically or manually by dragging your mouse.
