Hello everyone,

I am not completely sure of how to approach this problem:

If lim f(x)/x^2 as x-->0 is equal to 5, find the following limits:

a) lim f(x) as x--> 0

b) lim f(x)/x as x--> 0

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you !

Thanks for your reply.

So in order for the statement to be true, it is necessary to eliminate the x^2 in the denominator right? Otherwise you would be dividing by zero. So could f(x) be 5(x^2)? This way the x^2 would divide out and 5 would be left?

Am I on the right track? - September 18th 2009, 05:12 PMskeeter
