Anyways, I've been having trouble with the following problems, so I would appreciate if you guys could help out.

Find the limit (if it exists).

1) Limit as x tends to 2 for __(X^3)-8__

X-2

Mr F says: Factorise the numerator and then cancel the common factor. Then take the limit.

2) Limit as x tends to -4 __(X+4)ln(X+6)__

(X^2)-16

Mr F says: Factorise the denominator and then cancel the common factor. Then take the limit.

3) Limit as x tends to 0 __Root(x+5) - Root(5)__

x

4) Limit as x tends to 4 __Root(X+5) -3__

X-4

5) Limit as x tends to -3 from the left X

Root X^2 - 9 Mr F says: This expression is ambiguous. Please use appropriate brackets.

I've attempted the questions, but somehow got the answers of 1) DNE 2) ln2/-8 3) positive infinity 4) DNE

Of course, my answers were wrong.

Thank you!
