Limit[ <Function>, <Value> ]
Computes the limit of the function for the given value of the main function variable.
Example:
Limit[(x^2 + x) / x^2, +∞] yields 1.
Note: Not all limits can be calculated by GeoGebra, so undefined will be returned in those cases (as well as when the correct result is undefined).

CAS Syntax

Limit[ <Expression>, <Value> ]
Computes the limit of the expression for the given value of the main function variable.
Example:
Limit[a sin(x) / x, 0] yields a.
Limit[ <Expression>, <Variable>, <Value> ]
Computes the limit of the expression for the given value of the given function variable.
Example:
Limit[a sin(v) / v, v, 0] yields a.
