Choose $\delta=\varepsilon^{8}$ and then show that this implies that $|\sqrt[8]{6+x}-0|<\varepsilon$ for any choice of positive $\varepsilon$ and for any $x \in(-6,-6+\delta)$

In mathematics, the limit of a function is the value that the function gets very close to as the input approaches some value. Thus, it is referred to as the function value or output value.

In mathematics, a derivative is a measure of how a function changes as its input changes. Loosely speaking, a derivative can be thought of as how much one quantity is changing in response to changes in some other quantity; for example, the derivative of the position of a moving object with respect to time is the object's velocity. The concept of a derivative developed as a way to measure the steepness of a curve; the concept was ultimately generalized and now "derivative" is often used to refer to the relationship between two variables, independent and dependent, and to various related notions, such as the differential.

This is problem number twenty eight of the Stuart Tactless eighth edition. Section two point four proved the statement using the Absalon Delta definition of a limit. Lim is X approaches negative six from the right of the function. The fifth root the quantities six plus X is equal to zero. Yep, sound out the definition of a limit states that for any absolute greater than zero, there must be a delta greater than zero such that if the absolute value of the difference between X and A is listen Delta. Then there's the value of the function. Minus the limit is less than absolute. To be in our problem, we're going to start with the second inequality and use our information here. Our fifth root of six plus six is our FX, and we're subtracting the algae limit, which is equal to zero and said to see Liston Absalon, we simplify this function. Man zero is just the function itself. And then here we raise both sides to the fifth power, such that the inside remains as a CZ. The inside of the fifth root, which is actually six and under, said we have e to the absolute to the fifth. Now, if we work with this other and equality, we have the absolutely X minus. Aye, aye. Being negative. Six lesson delta. And then we see that this is the same as the absolute. The quantity X plus six is. Listen, daughter, if we compared this inequality with the one we just found for Absalon, we see that a choice of Delta being equal to the to Absolut to the fifth power at this choice of Delta Ah is enough to prove our statement. We are We found a daughter for any Absalon. So as long as we have an absolute credit in zero, we can determine the daughter through this manner. And it confirms each of the inequalities that we needed to Ah, to satisfy the definition of the limit. And in such manner, we proved proven the statement that this limit is equal to zero.
