# Find the limit as x goes to 1 of x1 / (1-x)

Evaluate the limit. First, we write From this exercise (Section 7.11, Exercise #4) we know that as we have Therefore, as , So, we then have (Here we could say that since the exponential is a continuous function we can bring the limit inside and so this becomes . I’m not sure we know we can pass limits through continuous functions like that, so we continue on with expanding the exponential as in previous exercises.)
Since as we take the expansion of as , Therefore, 1. Rafael Deiga says:

Below, I tried to prove that we can bring the limit inside since the exponential is a continuous function:

If is continuous in an interval I and I, then  Since the limits of g at right member of equation exist.

We can do , then for all , we have a such that |g(x)-L| |f(g(x))-f(L)|\delta x \to -\infty x \to \infty |lim_{x\to p}g(x)|= \infty \epsilon >0 \delta f(y) |lim_{x\to p} y|= \infty |lim_{x\to \infty}g(x)|= \infty\$, it’s analogous. Therefore, in any cases above, you only have to investigate the limit of g.
