$2\cdot 1-5=-3$

Learn how to solve limits by direct substitution problems step by step online. Find the limit of 2x-5=-3 as x approaches 1. Evaluate the limit \lim_{x\to1}\left(2x-5=-3\right) by replacing all occurrences of x by 1. Multiply 2 times 1. Subtract the values 2 and -5. So the limit results in.
