for example when Im asked to find the limit when x aproaches c in any given fucntion... does that mean that in that limit there will be always a hole? (obviously in polynomials divided by a monomial)

but in other cases i don't get a real good picture...

sorry for the messy question... is that i'm studying alone..

if someone could really explain me in any way that i can understand i will be really grateful.
