    first you want to multiply the top and bottom by the reciprocal of the top

    multiply top and bottom by that, and what do you get?

    yeep, but then i'll get this: \[\frac{ 2-t-2 }{ t(\sqrt{2-t})+\sqrt{2}}\]

    ill get:\[\frac{ -t }{ t(\sqrt{2-t} +\sqrt{2}) }\]

    also, the denominator should be \[t(\sqrt{2-t}+\sqrt{2})\]

    is it right to cancel a negative t with a positive t ?

    well, you just cancel the t's, the negative would stay.

    so you would get \[\frac{ -1 }{ \sqrt{2-t}+\sqrt{2} }\]

    now you can take the limit directly by plugging in 0.

    well, I suppose if you want to do it that way, I would just say \[\frac{ -1 }{ 2\sqrt{2} }\]
