Using Newton's law of universal gravitation, we can calculate that the point where the Sun's gravitational pull balances Pluto's pull is approximately 45.8 million kilometers from Pluto along a line toward the Sun. Pluto and the Sun are roughly 5.9 billion kilometers apart. The Sun is approximately 333,000 times more massive than Pluto.

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.
