Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The strategy for solving this is the same as the one I solved before, except the square root is gone and the limit boundary is negative infinity which will change the answer. \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}(x^{2}+2)/(x1)\] (factor out x^2 in the numerator and x in denominator) \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}x^{2}(1+2/x^{2})/x(11/x) \] \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}x(1+2/x^{2})/(11/x)\] \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}x(1+0)/(1+0) \] \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}x=\infty\] So the limit is \[\infty\]
