\(\large\color{blue}{\displaystyle\lim_{x \rightarrow ~\infty}\frac{\sqrt{x+1}}{\sqrt{2x}+\sqrt{x-1}}}\) can I interpret your question like this?
unimatix
  • unimatix
I believe that would be the same. Kind of trying to teach myself. The answer is given as 1 / ( 1 + sqrt(2) ) OR sqrt(2) - 1. I don't know how to solve it though.

rationalize the denominator

sorry this looks a bit messy. all three responses are the same . Rationalize the denominator. can you simplify the above drawing?

It's fine. I'm trying to rationalize the denominator. You can simplify the denominator to X-1

work in progress however (x-1)^2 = x^2 -2 x + 1 thinking about difference of 2 squares

I don't really understand how in the third step you swapped the place sqrt(2x) with the sqrt(x+1). Wouldn't that give you a numerator not equal to the one before?

nevermind that haha

@SolomonZelman that was very impressive can you simplify my numerator think difference of 2 squares then divide by (x+1)

Just divide top and bottom by sqrt(2H)

\[\frac{\sqrt{H+1}}{\sqrt{2H}+\sqrt{H-1}} \cdot \frac{\frac{1}{\sqrt{2H}}}{\frac{1}{\sqrt{2H}}} \\ =\frac{\frac{\sqrt{H+1}}{\sqrt{2H}}}{\frac{\sqrt{2H}+\sqrt{H-1}}{\sqrt{2H}}} \\ =\frac{\sqrt{\frac{H}{2H}+\frac{1}{2H}}}{\frac{\sqrt{2H}}{\sqrt{2H}}+\sqrt{\frac{H}{2H}-\frac{1}{2H}}}\]

now just take the limit of each term as H goes to infinity
triciaal
  • triciaal
|dw:1441559208589:dw|
freckles
  • freckles
since everybody seems really confused on to do this... we have H tends to infinity \[\frac{\sqrt{\frac{H}{2H}+\frac{1}{2H}}}{\frac{\sqrt{2H}}{\sqrt{2H}}+\sqrt{\frac{H}{2H}-\frac{1}{2H}}}=\frac{\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}+0}}{1+\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}-0}}\] you can play with this answer to make it prettier

in the limit set equal square each side cancel common factor
freckles

you just have to divide top and bottom sqrt(2H) that is the key here

the hint was that H tends to infinity

@unimatix do you understand what I did above?
unimatix
  • unimatix
@ freckles Your answer makes a lot of sense. What you made you decide to multiply by 1/sqrt(2H) though?
freckles
  • freckles
this is similar to having fractions where both numerator and denominator are polynomials when you have a polynomial over a polynomial you divide by the term on bottom that has highest exponent for the numerator and denominator that is of course when you are doing the whole x tends to positive or negative infinity this question is very similar except you do not have polynomials on top and bottom in a sense sqrt(H) was the term we are talking about I chose to divide by sqrt(2H) but sqrt(H) would work just as well or faster
freckles
  • freckles
and what I mean by faster is that you will see your answer more clearly because in the previous answer I gave you have to multiply top nad bottom by sqrt(2) to see you have the same answer

similar problem: \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{2x^2+x+1}{3x^2+1} \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{2x^2+x+1}{3x^2+1} \cdot \frac{\frac{1}{x^2}}{\frac{1}{x^2}} \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{\frac{2x^2}{x^2}+\frac{x}{x^2}+\frac{1}{x^2}}{\frac{3x^2}{x^2}+\frac{1}{x^2}}=\frac{2+0+0}{3+0}=\frac{2}{3}\]

WAHOO! I feel like I understand it now. Just have to remember to divide by polynomial with the highest power in the denominator.

another similar problem: \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{\sqrt{2x^2+x+1}}{\sqrt{3x^2+1}} \\ \\ \\\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\sqrt{2x^2+x+1}}{\sqrt{3x^2+1}} \cdot \frac{\frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2}}}{\frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2}}} \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\sqrt{\frac{2x^2}{x^2}+\frac{x}{x^2}+\frac{1}{x^2}}}{\sqrt{\frac{3x^2}{x^2}+\frac{1}{x^2}}} \\ =\frac{\sqrt{2+0+0}}{\sqrt{3+0}}=\frac{\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{3}}\]

\[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\sqrt{2x+1}-1}{x} \\ \text{ here we have } x>0 \text{ so } \sqrt{x^2}=x \\ \text{ divide \top and bottom by } x \\ \text{ and we will come back \in use this one fact } \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\frac{\sqrt{2x+1}}{x}-\frac{1}{x}}{\frac{x}{x}} \\ \text{ now for the } \sqrt{x^2}=x \\ \text{ we can rewrite that one } x \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\frac{\sqrt{2x+1}}{\sqrt{x^2}}-\frac{1}{x}}{\frac{x}{x}} \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\sqrt{\frac{2x+1}{x^2}}-\frac{1}{x}}{\frac{x}{x}} \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{\sqrt{\frac{2x}{x^2}-\frac{1}{x^2}}-\frac{1}{x}}{\frac{x}{x}} =\frac{\sqrt{0-0}-0}{1}=\frac{0}{1}=0\]

these can get tricky when dividing top and bottom by sqrt(x^2) because sqrt(x^2)=x when x>0 and sqrt(x^2)=-x when x<0 just something to remember when you come face to face with it I'm sure you will
