Hello weber, and welcome to the Forum!

To find , start by multiplying top and bottom of the fraction by , to get . Then factorise the denominator (difference of two squares) as . Now you can cancel the factors and evaluate the result at x=1.

Hey! Thanks a lot for both anwers and lightening speed reply! :D

@Opalg Thanks for the tip! The key is in the factorise the denominator

@Plato Did you do the same as Opalg? (multiplying top and bottom of the fraction by \sqrt{2x+3} + \sqrt5) ?

Also, there is more options to solve this limit? - May 1st 2011, 02:29 PMPlato
