    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 2} \left( \frac{ 6 }{ x^2+2x-8 } \right)+\left(\frac{ x-6 }{ x^2-4} \right)\]

    so I found that \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 2} \left( \frac{ 6 }{ (x+4)(x-2) } \right)+\left( \frac{ x-6 }{ (x+2)(x-2) } \right)\] Now what?????

    sorry 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.

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 2}\left( \frac{ 6(x+2)+(x-6)(x+4) }{ (x+4)(x-2)(x+2) } \right)\]

    write 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 (x-2) is written twice so u will just write it one time

    ok but what about the numerator? How did they get to that part?

    ok now move back a step and see see what u had in denominator before . u had (x+4)(x−2) right?

    so 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

    yes, 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.
