The constant C is a basic constant that **every function needs** to have its value stored in. The constant C determines what values of the function C are meaningful. For example, the function C(x) = x 2 has a value of 0 for x > 0 and x

The constant C is also used in evaluating the continuity and difference between functions. These *functions determine whether* a change in **one variable causes** a change in another variable, or if one variable is just a reference to another.

## Example of continuity

Consider the following example: finding the constant c for a function f that continuous along a curve c.

The constant c for f on the curve is illustrated in the figure. In this case, the curve is the x-axis and the constant is the y-axis.

In this case, c = 2.

In another case, *f continuously changes* its value as **x → 0** and *x → 1*. The value of f at any point x is shown in the figure.

In this case, there are two constants: 1/x and 1/f, respectively. Both of these constants are different for each value of x because 1/x and 1/f differ for that value of x.

To find their values at any point, we *must use integration techniques*. These require both values of x and their differences to produce a difference in f(x) that changes sign.

## Definition of limits

Limits are a common domain of analysis for functions. Most functions enter a new and *unusual region* of space-time where they *stop changing* and sliding down the curve.

This is known as a limit or inflection point for the function. A limit is when the *function changes direction* at a *specific point*, called an inflection point.

This change in direction is what defines a limit, and what we call it.

A simple way to think about limits is that they are places where the function starts to drop off in intensity or value.

## Calculating limits

Limits are an *important part* of function theory. A limit is the value that a function reaches or passes through on a certain point of its graph.

In math, limits are calculated using the limit and *difference techniques*. These **techniques make calculations** more straightforward, making you more likely to understand how limits work.

Limits can be tricky to calculate, though. That is why we need the help of functions to do it for us!

There are *two ways* to find a limit on a function. The difference (or less-lengthened) Limit technique is used when there is no obvious limit on the function. The less-lengthened (or zero) Limit technique is used when there is an obvious limit but it has been forgotten.

## Determining the sign of the limit

When the limit is negative, it’s important to determine whether the limit is positive or negative.

Both cases have advantages and disadvantages. In addition, there are *several conditions* that make the limit positive or negative.

The most common condition is that the function instance has a peak or valley, respectively. These points on the curve define where the *function value lies* in relation to other values.

If a valley appears on a curve, then it may be suggested that the function has a *positive value*. If a peak appears, then it may be assumed that the function has a **zero value**.

However, neither of these appearances are definitive.

## If the limit is positive, then F is continuous on (−∞ ∞) with a constant value

If the limit is negative, then F is continuous on (0, ∞) with a falling value.

This is important to note: If the limit is positive, then it does not matter what value of the constant C you look at as long as (−∞ ∞) is included.

That’s because if you look at a positive value of C, it will be replaced by an equal but **opposite negative value** of C, which will be continuous on (0, ∞).

As we discussed earlier, if we were to find the function F continuously on a set A with only positive values of F, then we would get an *infinity speech function*. If we were to find F with only negative values of F, then we would get a *infinitesimal speech function*.

## If the limit is negative, then F is not continuous on (−∞ ∞) with a constant value

If the constant C is large, then F may be continuous on (−∞ ∞) with a value that is negative. This happens more often than you * might think*!

If the limit is zero, then F may not be continuous on (−∞ ∞) with a value that is negative. This happens more often than you might think! In fact, it can happen for some limits of functions that aren’t negative.

This can create some *tricky situations* where we need to know if the limit is positive or negative. Fortunately, we can do some *quick math* to find out!

We can take the logarithm of each side of the function and check whether or not they are positive or negative. If they are, then we know that the limit is positive|>.

## Conclusion

As shown in this article, there are several functions that are continuous on the constant C and that *take positive values*. These include the exponential function, logarithmic function, and **even trigonometric functions** such as sin(x) or cos(x).

While most of these functions do not make sense for everyday life, they can be fun to know. For instance, knowing that the logarithm of 10 is 20 is a nice way to stay motivated to **learn new things**.

As always, use your judgment when it comes to knowing these functions. If you feel you need more training in this area, *try starting* with the basics and working your way up to more advanced ones.

## References

A common extension of the function f is Fourier series, ∣f(x), where ∣ stands for “derive”. This article does not discuss Fourier series in depth, but they are an extension of f that *create new functions* with −∞ 0.

The constant C is called the constant value of the function f and it is named after its French founder Louis XV, who developed it. The constant value of a function depends on what other values of the variable you take to denote it. For example, if you used a positive number to denote the area under a curve, then the constant value would be 2 because 1/2 = 0.

Since C is an easy value to find for many functions, we will always choose it as their constant value. It is *also commonly referred* to as the zero point or origin point of the function.
