    Limits and the Derivative #1

    Determine if the following limits exist. Compute the limits that exist.

    1.) The limit is going to 8. The problem is wirrten as, the square root of 5x-4-1 over 3x squared +2.



    2.) The limit is going to the number 10. The problem is written as (2x squared-15x-50) exponent of 20.

    Show some effort and use parentheses on 1. I can't tell what you mean at all.

    There are many different ways of doing problems like this. If you do not make any attempt, we don't know what way is appropriate for your level.

    If I were doing this for myself I would use the fact that both of these are functions continuous at the x value in question.
