Octave is for numerical calculations. You store numbers in variables as 
matrices, a single value is also ok then it is a scalar. Then you use 
mathematical operations on the variables numerical computations on the values 
in the variables are done.

variables f and x does not exist and at least in my Octave install there is no 
limit(...) function.
