Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x \rightarrow 2} \left( \frac{ 6 }{ x^2+2x8 } \right)+\left(\frac{ x6 }{ x^24} \right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I found that \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 2} \left( \frac{ 6 }{ (x+4)(x2) } \right)+\left( \frac{ x6 }{ (x+2)(x2) } \right)\] Now what?????

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry 1/3. I see the next step in the book but I don't understand how they got to it. I will write it up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1write all the terms in denominator if some term is repeating more then once , just write it one time. like in this case on one side u have (x+4)(x−2) and on other side (x+2)(x−2) so write them all in denominator but (x2) is written twice so u will just write it one time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok but what about the numerator? How did they get to that part?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok now move back a step and see see what u had in denominator before . u had (x+4)(x−2) right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you compare the old denominator with new numerator whichever is the common denominator u cancel them and whatever is left u multiply it with numerator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, so basically you devide the entire equation the the common denoiminator and then solve from there. I think I got it. Let me see if it works out.
