Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rose if you're not convinced, just plug a large number into your calculator to check! :) if you plug one bajillion in for x, what value do you get for the limit? \[\frac{ 2 }{ \sqrt{bajillion} }\approx \frac{ 2 }{ 999999999 } \approx 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, but do what zepdrix said only for check, because if you do this in a test for example, it will be wrong because infinity is NOT a number...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no! it will depends on what you are taking the limit, always try to simplify the limit, try to do not have a denominator, in this case we can not simplify so we do this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{2+\sqrt{x}}{2\sqrt{x}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what did you do with the whole numerator thing? u ended up with X

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when x goes to infinity, the other terms with lower power we take them off, and stay only with the higher terms them simply if possible and aply the limit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no this i simply take them out because comparing with infinity they make no difference

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you deal with limits on the infinity you can make this assumptions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you see L'hostpital's Rule this limits will became very easy to solve.... you will see

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see, when we have something divide by a number really really really small them it becomes a really really really large number so the limit tends to the infinity

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, but how did you get that 10?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is just a notation for this: 0.00000000000000000000000...00000000000001, then we represent this really small or large number with 10 power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that (pi/2)^+ is the same as (pi/2)?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ALMOST the same, when we have this + is a little more than pi/2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, the asnwer will be the same one right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, because if we take 1/0 it is not allowed. But 1/0.00000000001 is allowed

anonymous
