Use a table of values to estimate the value of the limit. If you have a graphing device, use it to confirm your result graphically.

When I graph this, as it is going to 1 it looks like it reaches and passes 0.5...

---------------------

The pointP(1, 1/9) lies on the curvey=x/(8 +x). IfQis the point (x,x/(8 +x)), use a scientific calculator to find the slope of the secant linePQ(correct to six decimal places) for the following values ofx.

(a) 0.5

(b) 0.9

(c) 0.99

(d) 0.999

(e) 1.5

(f) 1.1

(g) 1.01

(h) 1.001

If you could just help me with how to solve these I should be able to work them out myself.
