Use algebra to find the Limit as X approaches infinity of (1+12x) / (8-3x)

not being able to use the properties of limits and such, I have no clue where to even start.

$\displaystyle \frac{{1 + 12x}}{{8 - 3x}} = \frac{{\frac{1}{x} + 12}}{{\frac{8}

{x} - 3}}$

That is all the algebra there is to it.

Now I have no idea what you are expected to do other than to realize that

$\displaystyle \frac{1}{x} \to 0\text{ as } x \to \infty $
