elipson-delta definition of a limit to justify the answer.

So Far I found the limit:

Lim x->0 1/(x+1)=1

then this is the scratchwork:

1/(x+1)-1<E when 0< |x-0|< delta

Not sure if I did this inequality right:

|1/(x+1)-1|<E <==>|x/(x+1)|<E <==> |x/(x+1)|< 0E**??**

Do I have to find a number M**??**

1/|x+1| less than or equal to M

Proof:

|1/(x+1)-1|=|x|/|x+1| then I don't know how to keep going, not sure if it's 0E is correct (Wondering)

Re: elipson-delta definition of a limit to justify the answer

Proof: let E>0 and define delta= min {1/2,1/2E}

then if 0<|x-0|<delta

|1/(x+1)-1| = |x/x+1|

=|x|/|x+1|

<**(1/2)?**|x-0|

<**(1/2)?2E**

=E
