I mean , or

Of course, we have to suppose that limit of g(x) exists when x goes to a rational number 'a' or infinity but it never goes to zero!

A Chinese physicist argued with me days ago. He believes that . I said :"you're freakin me out, because any mathematical analysis textbook will never ever teach that. is indetermined, and you can never tell how fast the x's in numerator and denominator go to infinity!" Of course, as he said, I go to hell

I'm sure there is a warm spot for me down there as well.

f(x): R > R g(x): R > R 1) Suppose there is an epsilon such that g(x)<>0 if x in (aepsion,a+epsilon) interval and and lim g(x)<>0. Then f converges to a real number <> lim f / lim g = lim f/g. f diverges to +inf <> f/g diverges to +inf f divergent <> f/g divergent 2) Suppose there is an epsilon such that g(x)<>0 if x in (aepsion,a+epsilon) interval and lim g(x)=0. Then lim f/g can exist and can not exist, can converge to any real number or to +/inf. lim f / lim g is undefined, becasuse divived by zero. 3) Suppose lim f = lim g = + inf. Then lim f/g can exist or can not exist. Lim f/g can converge to +inf or any nonnegative real, but not to negative real. lim f / lim g is undefined, becasuse division is defined (by definition) on real numbers. An example when lim f/g doesn't exist: g(x) = 1/abs(xa) f(x) = 1/abs(xa) if x is rational, 2/abs(xa) if x is irrational Quote:

What if you do this ? Since
