    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 2} \frac{ x^2-4 }{ \sqrt{x-2} }\]

    without making the squareroot into an exponent how would i solve ?

    what about rationalizing the denominator

    the square root is complicating it for me

    but the exponential form is the best way to do it

    ohh we cant do that .. i did that too but my teacher said that since they are not binomials we cannot multiply by the conjugates

    rationalize the denominator in this case means multiply top and bottom by \[\sqrt{x-2}\]

    your denominator will be \(x-2\) which will cancel with on of the factors in the numerator

    i dont get it, why would you multiply top ad bottom by the square root ?

    ohh because it's the denominator ?
