Is it \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{4}{9x+3}\] for your question?

Never mind :) 1. Divide both numerator and denominator by x, what do you get?

Yup! Now, you need to know that \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{1}{x} = 0\]Now, can you evaluate the limit?

what does the 1/x = 0 mean? does that also mean that 4/x  0?

It's \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty \frac{1}{x}} = 0\] Imagine 1 is divided by a very large number, then you probably get 0.

Aww.. Bad typing! It's \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{1}{x}=0\]

so 4 divide by a very large number is pretty much 0, so I think the answer should be 0/9.

Just a little summary of the above: \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{4}{9x+3}\]Divide both numerator and denominator by x\[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\frac{4}{x}}{\frac{9x+3}{x}}\]\[=\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\frac{4}{x}}{9+\frac{3}{x}}\]\[= \frac{\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}(\frac{4}{x})}{\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}(9)+\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}(\frac{3}{x})}\]And then evaluate the limit by using \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{1}{x} = 0\]

One question, how did you know to divide by x at the first?
