Show by means of an example that lim x->a [f(x) + g(x)] may exist even though neither lim x->a f(x) nor lim x->a g(x) exists.

How could I show this?

One option is to take a function $\displaystyle f$, for which the limit at $\displaystyle x=a$ does not exist, and then take $\displaystyle g(x) = -f(x)$.
