To simplify the expression ( (x-c) - (2x-4c) ), you distribute the negative sign inside the parentheses of the second expression, which changes the signs of all terms inside the parentheses. Then, you can combine like terms.

( (x - c) - (2x - 4c) = x - c - 2x + 4c )

Combine like terms:

( x - 2x = -x )

( -c + 4c = 3c )

So, ( (x - c) - (2x - 4c) = -x + 3c ).

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.
