8-11.

Find the following limits for $g(x)$ graphed above.

1. $\lim\limits_ { x \rightarrow - 4 ^ { + } } g ( x )$

What y-value does $g(x)$ approach as $x$ approaches $−4$ from the positive (right) side?

$3$

1. $\lim\limits_ { x \rightarrow - 4 ^ { - } } g ( x )$

What $y$-value does $g(x)$ approach as $x$ approaches $−4$ from the negative (left) side?

1. $\lim\limits_ { x \rightarrow 2 } g ( x )$

What $y$ value does $g(x)$ approach as x approaches $2$ from both sides?

Since a limit is a predicted $y$-value, it can exist at a hole.

1. $\lim\limits_ { x \rightarrow 1 } g ( x )$

A two-sided limit must agree from both sides.
