    Need help evaluating the limit.

    I have a question that says,
    Evaluate the following limit-
    limit as h-->1 (x^3000 - 1) / (x-1)

    Thank-you.

    Since it does not depend on h, the limit is \frac{x^{3000} - 1}{x - 1}.

    I'll assume you meant  \lim_{x \to 1} \ \frac{x^{3000}-1}{x-1}

     = \lim_{x \to 1} \frac{(x-1)(x^{2999} +x^{2998}+....+x+1)}{x-1}  = 3000
