I think I can do it without what you said but using the ideas from calculus. Your limit represent the slope of the tangent of at . Let

.

The tangent line is or

The intersection of the tangent line and the quintic

or

There should be two intersection points, at and (some ) where the first will be a double root so eqn. (1.1) has the form

for some and .

Expanding and equating the coefficients of and gives

If we add/substract in the following order

gives

or , our desired limit. - Jan 14th 2010, 06:24 PMI4talent
