Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x\rightarrow 3} \frac{ x^2+x12}{x^3x^26x}\]Plug in and see we have an indeterminate form.\[\frac{ 3^2+312}{3^33^26(3)}=\frac{0}{0}\]Appling L'Hopitals rule\[\lim_{x\rightarrow 3} \frac{ \frac{d}{dx}(x^2+x12)}{\frac{d}{dx}(x^3x^26x)}\]\[\lim_{x\rightarrow 3} \frac{ 2x+1}{3x^22x6}\]\[\frac{2(3)+1}{3(3)^22(3)6}\]\[\frac{6+1}{2766}=\frac{7}{15}\]
