Is so the function is continuous at x=1 so just plug it right on in :)

\[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\frac{\sqrt[5]{2x+1}1}{\sqrt[4]{2x+1}1}\] Let me think on the algebraic approach I think it might be a substitution So the lcm of 5 and 4 is 20 So lets try the sub \[u^{20}=2x+1\] So that means \[(u^{20})^\frac{1}{5}=(2x+1)^\frac{1}{5} => u^4=\sqrt[5]{2x+1}\] and \[(u^{20})^\frac{1}{4}=(2x+1)^\frac{1}{4} => u^5=\sqrt[4]{2x+1}\]

So if x goes to 0 then what does u go to ?

\[u^{20}=2x+1 => u=(2x+1)^\frac{1}{20} \text{ correct?}\] So can you tell me what u goes to if x goes to 0?
