Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ah, right, x > 1, hence my passion to remove x+1 from the denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is a solve for limit that I have reached exhaustion upon. I think it is DNE. Lim (x> 1) of (3x^3 + 1) / (x+1 I can find no result other than indeterminate, using a table shows the val's skate off to infinity in opposite directions as x approaches 1, which both my sketch and your wolf confirms on the chart. Am I missing something?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you get the above by doing polynomial division (well, wolf to save time and effort). http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%283x^3+%2B+1%29+%2F+%28x%2B1%29

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Still unable to work past indeterminate result. Okay, I am going to settle finally, finally, finally on DNE. As Regis would want to know, yes, it's my final answer.
