$\lim x ->\infty \left(\begin{matrix}\sqrt{(2c-a)} -a\\ a-c\end{matrix}\right)$

lim c--> inf? a--> inf?

5. anonymous

Why are you putting factorials in

6. anonymous

I'll assume the x should be c or a, doesn't matter Do you know to multiply top and bottom by (sqrt 2c-a) +a

7. dan815

misunderstood question

8. anonymous

and once you do you have (2c-a)-a on top (a-c)(sqrt (2c-a) + a on bottom now factor out -2 on top and you have -2(a-c) -a and you can cancel out the (a-c)

9. anonymous

and now you are at the point where it matters if your x is supposed to be a or c

10. anonymous

My x is c

11. anonymous

ok its 0 then

12. anonymous

did you follow the above steps or would it be easier in equation form

dan815 but if you repalce x for a you got a indetermination

16. dan815

can you clarify your question lim ?-->inf

17. anonymous

Is lim when c --> a sorry I misspelled the question

18. dan815

oh in that case, you have to follow kheaths steps

looks like he did not give you the right steps exactly, so work it out from here

looks the original question has so many typoes @Gloria63 please take a screenshot and attach if psble

24. anonymous

$\lim c ->a, \frac{ \sqrt{(2c-a)} -a}{a -c }$

not so sure wolf says the two sided limit doesn't exist http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=lim%28c%5Cto+a%29+%28sqrt%282c-a%29-a%29%2F%28a-c%29
