and it explains how u divide the numerator and denominator by the highest power of x in the denominator. Everything i understood until it showed:

lim x approaches infinity sqrt(2x^2+1)/(3x-5) =lim x approaches infinity sqrt(2+(1/x^2))/(3-5/x)

So the denominator i understand, simple cancelling of the x, but how did we go from sqwrt(2x^2+1) to sqrt (2+(1/x^2)) just by dividing by x? So confused
