Absolute Value and Square Roots

Absolute values often show up in problems involving square roots. That’s because you can’t take the square root of a negative number without introducing imaginary numbers (those involving $i = \sqrt{-1}$ ). Example 1: Simplify $\sqrt{x^{2}}$ This problem looks deceptively simple. Many students...

Absolute Value and Logarithms

Absolute Value and Logarithms Absolute values often turn up unexpectedly in problems involving logarithms. That’s because you can’t take the log of a negative number. Let’s first review the definition of the logarithm function: Logb x = y ⇔ by = x (The double arrow is a bi-conditional, which means...

L’Hospital’s Rule

L’Hospital’s Rule is a useful way to evaluate tricky limits. It is most often used for limits of indeterminate form. The rule is as follows: If $f(x)$ and $g(x)$ are differentiable on some interval around the number $a$ (or if $a=\infty$, $f(x)$ and $g(x)$ are differentiable for all...
