CALCULUS Understanding Its Concepts and Methods

Squeeze theorem

If the values of a function lie between the values of two other functions,
both having the same limit at some point
*a*,
then the middle function must have the same limit at that point
*a*.

This law is variously referred to as the squeeze theorem, the sandwich theorem, or the pinching theorem.
