    Rationalise the denominator by multiplying by \[\frac{ \sqrt[3]{(x+7)^2}+2 }{ \sqrt[3]{(x+7)^2}+2 } \]

    x+7=t^3 as x ---> 1 t ----> 2

    And you can get rid of the denominator. Once you do that. Sub back the x's.

    so when i make the sub I get \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} \frac{ x-1 }{ t+2 }\] ?

    No you sub the x on the numerator as well.

    \[t^3=x+7\] make x the subject. \[x=t^3-7\]

    Now sub the x on the numerator with t^3-7

    Now you can get rid of that denominator.

    Once you do that, remember to replace the t's with \[\sqrt[3]{x+7}\]

    and then you can then sub in x=1 to find the limit.
