not sure if that's going to do the trick we get on the top line (sqrtx 3)(x+3sqrtx +9)

bottom also we can factor : \( x 9 = (\sqrt{x})^2  3^2\)

I don't think this solves the problem. I am trying to find the limit as x goes to 9. If you put in 9 for x, the denominator is still 0 or undefined. Something must be cancelled off so you can plug 9 into for x and solve.

Yes it does. Top line (sqrtx 3)(x+3sqrtx+9) Bottom line (sqrtx+3)(sqrtx3)
