Hi,

I don't know where to start with this problem.

I'm trying to evaluate the limit as x goes towards 7 of ((x+2)^(1/2)-3)/(x-7).

The answer is 1/6 according to my text.

Sorry, my latex skills are a bit rusty...

THanks.

L'Hopital's rule should work.

Awesome, thanks. Looks like I'm learning that rule next lecture.
