Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have something called an 'indeterminate form' since both the numerator and denominator approach 0 as x approaches 3. In these cases, you can use L'Hopital's rule, which says\[\lim_{x \rightarrow a}\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}=\lim_{x \rightarrow a}\frac{f'(x)}{g'(x)}\]In your case, \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 3}\frac{x^481}{2x^25x3}=\lim_{x \rightarrow 3}\frac{4x^3}{4x5}=\frac{108}{7}\]
