To find the other end of the line segment bisected by the line with the equation (4y - 3x = 2) and one end at (2, 1), we can first find the midpoint of the line segment using the given point and then use the midpoint formula to find the other end.

The midpoint formula is (\left(\frac{{x_1 + x_2}}{2}, \frac{{y_1 + y_2}}{2}\right)). Given the point (2, 1) and assuming the other end is (x, y), we can set up the midpoint formula as:

(\left(\frac{{2 + x}}{2}, \frac{{1 + y}}{2}\right))

Now, since the line bisects the line segment, it passes through the midpoint. We can substitute the midpoint coordinates into the equation of the line (4y - 3x = 2) and solve for x and y.

Substitute the midpoint coordinates into the equation:

(4\left(\frac{{1 + y}}{2}\right) - 3\left(\frac{{2 + x}}{2}\right) = 2)

Simplify and solve for x and y:

(2(1 + y) - 3(2 + x) = 2)

(2 + 2y - 6 - 3x = 2)

(-4 - 3x + 2y = 0)

(3x - 2y = -4)

Now, plug in the given point (2, 1) to find x and y:

(3(2) - 2(1) = -4)

(6 - 2 = -4)

(4 = -4) (This is not possible, indicating that there is no solution with the given information.)

Therefore, based on the given information, it's not possible to determine the exact coordinates of the other end of the line segment.

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.
