## anonymous 3 years ago Find lim (x² - x - 2)/(x³ - 2x² - x + 2)

1. anonymous

the limit as x goes to what?

2. anonymous

what do u mean?

3. anonymous

if it is $\lim_{x\to \infty}$ then the answer is zero, because the degree of the numerator is less than the degree of the denominator

4. anonymous

okay

when you are being asked for a limit, it has to be a limit as x goes to something like $\lim_{x\to 2}$ or $\lim_{x\to -\infty}$ or something asking "what is the limit" without specifying what $$x$$ is approaching doesn't work

7. anonymous

do you know what limit you wanted?

8. anonymous

okay got it thanks
