Re: Limits!

You left out 1 from the numerator:

and use the rule again.

Re: Limits!

Hi all;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Limits!

Hi all,

-2 is correct.

Hi anonimnystefy,

If you show your steps, it would be easier to know whether you are approaching it in a good way, or you have come up with a better way!

Hi anonimnystefy,

You may avoid L'Hospital's rule here!

Now, try the next one!
