1. ## evaluating a limit

evaluate the limit ..

i've tried everything and cant seem to get it.. i multiplied top and bottom by 1/t and squared it all by ^1/2. i got 4 and it was wrong, then i did it another way to get 6/3 and that was wrong too =(

$\displaystyle \frac{6t-9}{\sqrt{t^2 + 3t + 5}} = \sqrt{\frac{36t^2-108t+81}{t^2 + 3t + 5}} = \sqrt{\frac{36-\frac{108}{t}+\frac{81}{t^2}}{1 + \frac{3}{t} + \frac{5}{t^2}}}$

now take the limit as $\displaystyle t \to \infty$

3. it worked thanks! if you dont mind me asking though, why square the top? i thought you only did that when it was to the negative infinity

I squared the numerator to get all of it under the radical.
