is x and z the same?
ok divide by x^2
after division by x^2 limit x->infinity 1/x^2-5 can you do it now?

cubics dont converge
Hmm, \(0 - 5\) if we do it individually.
I got it!
ok .
But how are we allowed to divide by \(x^2\)?
5x^3/x^2 = 5x tho ....
And how did you get \(5x^3 \div x^2 = 5\)? It's 5x.
Yeah
It's the same if we divide by \(x^3\) anyway, just that the thing becomes 1/x^3
does not matter you divided both if you take x^2 as LCM you get original back.
no it wouldn't be same. always divide by highest power available in the question . here it is x^2
Aha! Thank you! But I still don't get how we are allowed to divide both sides by x^3.
sorry it is x^3
\[ \lim_{x \to \infty} x^3({1 \over x^3} - 5)\] \[ x^3 \lim_{x \to \infty} -5 \]
I think that you also factor the \(x^3\) out.
Oh! Wait!
\[ \lim_{x \to \infty}x^5 \times \lim_{x \to \infty}{1 \over x^3} - 5\]
x^3*
But isn't that the indeterminate form?
why are you trying to makes sense of this? a cubic does not converge
But it is given that the solution is -5.
and i say the sky has floating cotton candy for clouds; does it make it true?
no you cannot take it out always.just divide each term because if you take common then you will get x^3also then it will always gives you infinity.

Well, may I know how you are allowed to divide by \(x^3\)? (I know that you divide the variable with the exponent as the highest power).
Uh oh. this should pretty simply be equal to negative infinity. Logically speaking.
The original question is: \[ \lim_{z \to 0} {4z^2 + z^6 \over 1- z^3} \]
if the original is that, why would you ask this other thing as a post?
Infinity, not 0.
@amistre64 you are right .it does not converges . this division rule works only when you have fractions .rational functions @ParthKohli you should take common x^3. for example

Because they showed something like \[ \lim_{z \to \infty} {4z^2 + z^6 \over 1 - z^3} = {-\infty \over -5} \]
the answer to your question is -infinity @ParthKohli
Hmm, I was confused as to why it was -5 and not -infinity :P
I mean... the question that I originally asked is supposed to be -infinity, right?
yes right
Aye aye!
