Whats the difference between \(\lim_{x\rightarrow 1}\)\(\lim_{x\rightarrow 1-}\), and \(\lim_{x\rightarrow 1+}\)?
In my homework, I'm working based off given graphs, but I can't figure out what direction they're all coming from
Thanks!

The first one is known as a two-sided limit.....we are trying to find the limit as x approaches 1 from both sides

 

The next two are-one sided limits.....for the second, we are trying to find the limit as x approaches 1 from the left side

 

Finally....the last one means that we want to find the limit as x approaches 1 from the right side
