That rationalization is incorrect. It is a cube root not a square root.

You need to use $\displaystyle \left( {\frac{{\sqrt[3]{{{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}^2}}} + \sqrt[3]{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}} + 1}}{{\sqrt[3]{{{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}^2}}} + \sqrt[3]{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}} + 1}}} \right)$ - Mar 6th 2013, 10:05 AMasilvester635Re: Evaluating limits
Do I foil the original numerator with the equation that you gave me?

I have no idea what FOIL means. Is it some term from some dumb math-ed class?

Just learn to do basic algebra.

Surely you know that $\displaystyle a^3-b^3=(a-b)(a^2+ab+b^2)~!$

$\displaystyle \left( {\frac{{\sqrt[3]{{1 + cx}} - 1}}{x}} \right)\left( {\frac{{\sqrt[3]{{{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}^2}}} + \sqrt[3]{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}} + 1}}{{\sqrt[3]{{{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}^2}}} + \sqrt[3]{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}} + 1}}} \right) = \frac{c}{{\sqrt[3]{{{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}^2}}} + \sqrt[3]{{\left( {1 + cx} \right)}} + 1}}$ - Mar 6th 2013, 05:58 PMasilvester635Re: Evaluating limits
Sorry ahh BOSS! Got it from yo mama haha
