    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 8} \frac{ (x^\frac{ 2 }{ 3 } - 4) }{ (x^\frac{ 1 }{ 3 } - 2) }\]

    Hint: factor the numerator.

    The numerator has the form \(a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)\).

    You don't have to divide, @sudharsa.

    if x= 8 then cubic root of it will be 2 then proceed yeah

    @across I don't understand how to factor the numberator..

    If you let \(u=x^{1/3}\), then your numerator will become \(u^2-4\). Can you factor that?

    its x^(2/3), but nonetheless, (u+2)(u-2)

    You have to let \(u=x^{1/3}\) because then \(u^2=x^{2/3}\)... now re-substitute and solve your exercise.
