    I couldn't understand the operation in the answer.
    He adds 2 to the limit sign. Is it possible to find a material about this operation?

    Re: limits

    I do not understand your question. I do not see any question where "he adds 2 to the limit sign". On page 152, the last question on the right side at the bottom of the page appears to be:

    $\displaystyle \lim_{x \to 1^-} \dfrac{f(x+2)}{f(2-x)}$

    And there is a graph of $f(x)$.

    Perhaps you are referring how he goes from
    $\displaystyle \lim_{x \to 1^-} \dfrac{f(x+2)}{f(2-x)} = \dfrac{\displaystyle \lim_{x \to 3^-} f(x)}{\displaystyle \lim_{x \to 1^+} f(x)}$

    That is because as $x$ approaches 1 from the left, $x+2$ approaches 3 from the left. So, he reevaluates the limit of the numerator as $\displaystyle \lim_{x \to 3^-} f(x)$. As $x$ approaches 1 from the left, $2-x$ approaches 1 from the right. So, he reevaluates the limit of the denominator as $\displaystyle \lim_{x \to 1^+} f(x)$.
