i need to find the limits ..

x -> 8+

x-> 8-

x-> 5+

x-> 5-

x-> 1+

x-> 1-

i've found

x -> 8+ = infinity

x-> 8- = infinity

x-> 5+ = infinity

x-> 5- = DNE

x-> 1+ = DNE

x-> 1- = DNE

i thought that the last three didn't exsist because the square root was of a negative number when these were used, i know how to find limits but obviously i'm missing something here.

i was almost certain that sqrt(-) cannot be done for this,

please help me it's driving me mad

thanks in advance,
