Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0numerator is larger than the denominator, so no limit or you could say \(\infty\) as \(x\to \infty\) and \(\infty\) as \(x\to \infty\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can see that the top gets larger faster than the bottom so it is either going to be positive infinity or negative infinity, depending on if your taking the limit as x approaches infinity or negative infinity respectively
