Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the degree of the denominator is larger than the degree of the numerator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the actual expansion doesn't matter. The key here is that we have x^2 as the first term, so we have a 2nd degree polynomial in the denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is not a mystery. plug in say \(x=100\) (not a hysterically large number) and see that you get an answer very close to zero
