    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

    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
