Answer

(a) $\lim _{x \rightarrow \infty} x^3=\infty $. (b) $\lim _{x \rightarrow -\infty} x^3=-\infty $. (c) $\lim _{x \rightarrow -\infty} x^4=\infty $.

Work Step by Step

(a) Since $3\gt 0$, then we have $\lim _{x \rightarrow \infty} x^3=\infty $. (b) Since $3\gt 0$ and odd, then we have $\lim _{x \rightarrow -\infty} x^3=-\infty $. (c) Since $4\gt 0$ and even, then we have $\lim _{x \rightarrow -\infty} x^4=\infty $.
