Find the limit as x approaches 2 for (4-x/2), then find delta > 0 such that |f(x)-L| < 0.01 whenever 0 < |x - c | < delta I could use 1) step by step explanation 2) a resource other than khan academy for delta epsilon examples

since there is not bad values for x, it can be anything it wants to be and have a good value, then the limit is the same as the value of the equation when x = 2; which is either 3 or 1 in this case depending on how you meant to write it. \[\frac{4-(2)}{2}=1\] \[4-\frac{(2)}{2}=3\] To determine delta, solve for f(x) = 2+.01 , and f(x) = 2-.01 and pick the "x" value that is smaller

one way is the one given by lifesaver which uses the knowledge that 4-x/2 is a continuous function of x. if you really want to verify the limit by epsilon delta definition choose an \[\epsilon\]. now create the inequation \[\left| 4-x/2-3 \right|<\epsilon\] solving it you will get \[x >2(1-\epsilon)\] and \[x<2(1+\epsilon)\] hence our \[\delta=\min(2(1+\epsilon),2(1-\epsilon))=2(1-\epsilon)\] as for this delta the definition of limit is satisfied . hence for any \[\epsilon\] we are able to find a \[\delta\] satisfying the definition of limit. hence the limit exists and is 3.
