How can I use LaTeX code to write limit equations? I am mainly facing at the point where I am to assign the "x tends to" part.

    That would be covered in any reasonable LaTeX intro document, like lshort on CTAN. \lim_{x\to\infty}

You may use LaTeX to write the limit equations, without calling any extra packages. Using daleif's example in his comment:

enter image description here





$\lim\limits_{x \to \infty}$

    What's the purpose of \mathop here? \limits can be used directly: \lim\limits_{...}. This is also the default for \displaystyle. Commented Sep 12, 2015 at 8:14

    @HeikoOberdiek You are right, I removed that \mathop part.
