To find out how many seconds it will take for the clock to strike 6 times at 6 o'clock, we can set up a proportion based on the relationship between the number of strikes and the time taken.

At 4 o'clock, the clock strikes 4 times in 6 seconds. So, the ratio of strikes to time is ( \frac{4}{6} ) strikes per second.

Now, we need to find out how many seconds it will take for the clock to strike 6 times.

Let ( x ) be the number of seconds it will take to strike 6 times.

Setting up the proportion:

[ \frac{4}{6} = \frac{6}{x} ]

Cross-multiplying:

[ 4x = 6 \times 6 ]

[ 4x = 36 ]

Dividing both sides by 4:

[ x = \frac{36}{4} ]

[ x = 9 ]

So, it will take 9 seconds for the clock to strike 6 times at 6 o'clock.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
