Hey all here is an easy calc. question but i can't seem to understand how to answer it
Question:
True or False? If the statement is true, explain why; if it is false, then explain how to determine the value of and then, evaluate the limit.
There is no number such that exists.
The Part that I need help with:
I know that answer is false but how do i evaluate ?
The limit can only exist if there is a factor of (x+1) in the numerator to cancel with the (x+1) term in the denominator. If such a factor exists in the numerator, then the discontinuity at x=-1 will be removable (meaning the limit does exist) instead of infinite (meaning the limit does not exist).
Therefore we must find what value of c causes to be divisible by . You can do this by using long division to find the remainder, and setting the remainder equal to zero.
