    x+1 is a factor of this right?

    I think it is one half. Because you got up- and downstairs and x^4 which I think is a special case and in which the limit approaches the coefficents before these two identical powers of x which is 1upstairs and 2 downstairs - 1/2.

    it is 1/2 only but how

    If you would use the L`Hopital Rule you would end up with it.

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty }\frac{3x^4+4x^3+}{4x^4+x^2+7}\] I'm trying to do this with the same concept but i'm getting 5/7 @TomLikesPhysics ?

    but how is it gaining infinity/infinity?

    How it gains infinity? You take the limit where x goes to infinity. So both terms grow. Is that what you meant?

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty } \frac{x^3+x^2+4}{x^2+8}\] are you gettng 1 here?

    Here it should be infinity. You got downstairs an x^2 and upstairs and x^3. So the x^3 "is stronger" and wins and therefore the whole thing goes to infinity.

    No,I solved according to what you said and got this: \[\frac{3x^2+2x}{2x}\] so I got 3x+1=1?

    How do you end up with 3x+1=1 if you got a fraction?

    k but if you got 3x+1 and let x approach infinity (taking the limit) than you end up with infinity.

    okay! if it was 1/x and x==> infinity it would have been 1 RIGHT?

    limit x-> inf. of ax+b is alsways infinity. The b does not matter in the long run and nether does a while x gets bigger and bigger.

    If you got 1/x and x gets bigger and bigger you would get a limit which is 0.

    1/x as x approaches infinity is 0. 1/x as x approaches 0 is infinity.

    I don´t know. Have not seen this one before.^^ Never dealt with limits and sine or cosine.
