In this lesson on Calculation of Limits, the use of "limit laws" to compute limits is explained. The six basic general facts about limits are discussed, such as the limit of the sum being equal to the sum of the limits and the limit of a product being equal to the product of the limits. Examples are given to show how to simplify functions and compute limits. The continuity property is mentioned, which says that the limit equals the value of the function at a point. One-sided limits and non-existent one-sided limits are also covered.
