## anonymous 4 years ago What is the limit as x is approaching -8 (12x+11)?

Be more clear when you ask. Is it $\lim_{x \rightarrow -8}(12x+11)?$ If so, you can just plug in -8 (since you don't get an indeterminate value), yielding 12(-8)+11=-85

That's what I was going for! Thank you :)

Welcome. Remember that as long as you don't end up with an answer that's indeterminate (divided by 0, infinity/infinity, etc), you can always just plug in to solve a limit.
