## anonymous 5 years ago EVALUATE USING ALGEBRA LIM X^2 +2 / X -1 AS X GOES TO NEGATIVE INFINITY

The 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. $\lim_{x \rightarrow -\infty}(x^{2}+2)/(x-1)$ (factor out x^2 in the numerator and x in denominator) $\lim_{x \rightarrow -\infty}x^{2}(1+2/x^{2})/x(1-1/x)$ $\lim_{x \rightarrow -\infty}x(1+2/x^{2})/(1-1/x)$ $\lim_{x \rightarrow -\infty}x(1+0)/(1+0)$ $\lim_{x \rightarrow -\infty}x=-\infty$ So the limit is $-\infty$
