lim (2- √(6-x))/(x-2)

x->2

lim (3x²-x+1)/(x+3)

x->-3-

lim (√(x+Δx)- √(x))/Δx

Δx->0

lim (sin3x)/x

x->0

lim (x+2)/(x³+8)

x->-2

For this we need to make use of the important result:

Here the limit is not finite. As x approaches -3 from -'ve infinity the given function approaches -infinity

so:

L'Hopital's rule would be very useful in some of those.

It states that if f(x) and g(x) are both undefined for some value of x (call it p), then:

.Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Here you can see that as x tends to -3 from -infinity the value of the function is heading to -infinity.

You might have entered the function incorrectly?
