    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 1} \frac{ x^4+x^3-2x }{ }\]

    not working so Lim x^4+x^3-2x/x^5+2x-3 x->1

    Do you mean l'Hôpital's Rule by limit law? In that case take the derivative of both the numerator and the denominator and then take the limit as x goes to 1.

    I thought I need to factorize first

    That can help sometimes, but factorising the denominator is difficult and l'H will crack it anyway...

    l'H = l'Hôpital's Rule

    No, using l'Hôpital's Rule allows you to take the limit as x goes to 1 of the top and bottom separately.

    So, after differentiating separately yo now have this:\[\lim_{x \rightarrow 1}\frac{ 4x^3+3x^2-2 }{ 5x^4+2 }\]No 0/0 problem anymore, just set x=1 to see the result.
