    if the denominator grows bigger than the numerator, then the limit is 0

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \dfrac{3x + 2}{3x^2 - 5x + 8}\] \[ =\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \dfrac{ x^2 \left( \frac{3}{x} + \frac{2}{x^2} \right) } {x^2 \left( 3 - \frac{5}{x} + \frac{8}{x^2} \right) }\] \[ = \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \dfrac{ \frac{3}{x} + \frac{2}{x^2} } { 3 - \frac{5}{x} + \frac{8}{x^2} } \] \[ = \dfrac{ 0 + 0} { 3 - 0 + 0 } \] \(= 0\)
