# Show That Lim (x,y) => (0,0) (xy^2)/(x^2 + Y^2) Do

 Anonymous From: -Posts: -Votes: - Show that lim (x,y) => (0,0) (xy^2)/(x^2 + y^2) does not exist. Please show work on paper** MathTeacher From: USPosts: 3Votes: 3 F is not continuous at (0,0). The limit of f as (x,y) ->(0,0) does not exist. Consider the pair of paths: take (x,y) -> (0,0) along y = x lim x^3/(x^2 + x^4) = 0. x->0 take (x,y) ->(0,0) along y = v|x| lim x|x|/(x² + x²) = 1 and x->0+ lim x|x|/(x² + x²) = -1. x->0- Feel free to contact me. If you have any doubts Thanks :)  TinyPro6 From: USPosts: 22Votes: 88 F is not continuous at (0,0). The limit of f as (x,y) ->(0,0) does not exist.

Anonymous From: -Posts: -Votes: - Lim (x,y) => (0,0) (xy^2)/(x^2 + y^2) exists and =0 suppose y=sin x and as per L hospital rule, lim (x,y) => (0,0) (xy^2)/(x^2 + y^2) = lim (x,y) => (0,0), x sin2x /(x^2 + sin 2x), take derivative, then lim (x,y) => (0,0), sin2x + x sin 2x /(2x + sin 2x), take again derivative, then lim (x,y) => (0,0), 2sin2x + 2 cos 2x/(2 + 2cos2x), =lim (x,y) => (0,0), sin2x + cos 2x/(1 + cos2x), as x and y approaches to 0, numerartor approaches to 1 and denominator to 2 hence it will be (1/2). If question is lim (x,y) => (0,0) (xy^2)/(x^2 - y^2) , then it does not exist. please check.
