Look at the definition of a limit. I'm taking this straight of of Stewart 5e: $\lim_{x\rightarrow a} f(x) = \infty \\ \text{ if for every positive number M, there exists a postive \delta such that\\ f(x) > M \text{ whenever } 0<|x-a|<\delta$ So, f(x) = 1/x^2, and a = 0. We want to be able to choose, for each M, a delta such that: $0< |x| < \delta \text{ means } \frac{1}{x^2} < M$ Can you find such a delta (relative to M)?
