    Question Limit calculation

    In the image below, how am I applying the limit laws wrong? I know the correct solution is 5, but I get -1!

    The problem I am facing is something related to my usage of the product rule for limits.

    Your limits are absolutely correct. But you middle school arithmetic is lousy.

    $\displaystyle 3\cdot 1-1+3=5$
