Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as x goes towards infinity the 1/2x part of the term becomes insignificant since it is practically 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you have to find the second derivative? Possibly using the l'hospital's rule?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you now have an exponential term, so as x reaches infinity, the number approaches infinity. so the limit is infinity (or does not exist)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it'll be like 1^3*1, then 1^3*1000....the number just goes on forever with no limit
