Math Help - Limits

1. Limits

how do i find the value of lim of (2x-6) over (square of x - square root of 3) as x approaches 3 if limit exist.

2. $\frac{2x-6}{\sqrt{x}-\sqrt{3}}=\frac{2\left( \sqrt{x}+\sqrt{3} \right)\left( \sqrt{x}-\sqrt{3} \right)}{\sqrt{x}-\sqrt{3}}=2\left( \sqrt{x}+\sqrt{3} \right)\to 4\sqrt{3}$ as $x\to3.$

3. This this what you mean?:

$\lim_{x\to 3}\frac{2x-6}{(x-\sqrt{3})^{2}}$

or is it:

$\lim_{x\to 3}\frac{2x-6}{x^{2}-\sqrt{3}}$

or none of the above?.

like the bottom one except that its not x^2 its square root of x

5. You had 'square of x', not square root of x. Anyway, Kriz nailed it.
