Hi there,

I'm floundering here, and could use some insight, I have read through the paper posted regarding epsilon-delta proofs, but I'm having trouble swallowing the information. Perhaps it's been too long since I took Calc courses, and maybe I should buy one of those Calc for dummies books I apreciate any help you can give.

** Use the formal delta-epsilon definition of

lim f(x) = L to prove that

x -> a

lim (mx+b) = mc+b

x->c

**Use the definition of the derivative to prove that

D (mx + b)=m

..x

and discuss the relationship of definite integral to the derivative
