## Limit Calculator with steps

Limit calculator is an online tool that evaluates limits for the given functions and shows all steps. It solves limits with respect to a variable. Limits can be evaluated on either left or right hand side using this limit solver.

## What are limits?

**“**The limit of a function is the value that *f(x)* gets closer to as *x* approaches some number.**”**

Limits are vital to mathematical analysis and calculus. They are also used to define derivatives, integrals, and continuity.

## How to evaluate limits?

Using limit evaluator is the best way to solve limits, however, we will discuss manual method to evaluate limits. Follow the below example to understand step by step method to solve limits.

*Example:*

lim_{x→2}(x^{3}+4x^{2}−2x+1)

**Solution:**

**Step 1: **Apply the limit function separately to each value.

**Step 2: **Separate coefficients and get them out of limit function.

**Step 3: **Apply the limit by substituting *x = 2 *in the equation.

*= 1(2*^{3}) + 4(2^{2}) – 2(2) + 1

*= 8 + 16 – 4 + 1*

*= 21*

Limit finder above also uses L'hopital's rule to solve limits.
