[QUOTE=ThePerfectHacker;25185]Question 1, Use the standard rationalization trick,

The function,

And,

Agree for sufficiently large , thus the limits are the same.

Working with the second function we find,

Thus,

For suffiently large, i.e., we factor,

Factor again,

Thus,

Now,

limit compositions rule,
