Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In case you didn't know all the numbers next to the "X" is a power, ex: 16x^4x^3 ++4/4x^4+2x^3+x^2+5x+2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and, what do you get when you divide all the terms by the highest power of x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(16x4 − x3 + x + 4)/x4  (4x4 + 2x3 + x2 + 5x + 2)/x4 16 +(− x3 + x + 4)/x4  4 + (2x3 + x2 + 5x + 2)/x4 the 'lesser powers' do not overcome the x4 so they will retain an x under them. anything with an x under it goes to 0 as x to infinity what does this leave us? 16 + 0  4 + 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 3 rules are: if the degree of the top is bigger than the bottom, the limit to infinity DNE if the degree of the top is smaller than the bottom, the limit to infinity is 0 if the degree of the top is the same as the bottom, the limit to infinity is the ratio of leading coeffs
