Just need a couple of problems double checked for me.

lim (x^2+4x-5)/x^2-1

x->1

I am saying that this limit does not exist because of the 0 numberator.

In this one, I have forgotten the rules for square roots.

lim [(sq rt 2x-1) -3]/x-5

x->5-

Basic rule, is that if you have a fraction that does not lead to division by zero upon substitution then you can substitute.
