    please don't use lhopitals or anything im in basic calculus and haven't learned it yet. Suposed to be able to algebriaically change it to solve. I know the answer is suposed to be 1/6 i just don't know how to get there

    is that not right after multiplying by \[\sqrt{x}\]+3?

    so i now have \[\frac{ \sqrt{x}+3 }{ x-9 } - \frac{ 6 }{ x-9}\]

    \[\frac{ \sqrt{x}-3 }{ x-9 }\] and if i plug in 9 it will be 0 over 0

    because your calculations give me \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 9}\frac{ \sqrt{x}-3 }{ x-9 }\]
