Hi!

I have a homework and I could not figure out 1 of 10 tasks.

I think it is really simple, if I take the "brutal" method I can see that function goes to -inf.

Even with a grapher I can see that function goes to -inf. (except for if x < 0).

Only the first equation.

As far as I figured out I can do many things here, but the result... not so right.

First I tried to simplify, (n^4 + 1)(n^2-1).

Then tried to multiply and divide the equation with sqrt(...) + sqrt(...), tried to get a^2 - b^2 = (a-b)(a+b)

When I simplified the upper part I get n^2 - n^4, since there is a n to divide, then I can divide everything with n and get n - n^3.

Then inserting inf. I get (inf. - inf.), so no good. Tried to divide everything with the highest n, which is n^3.

Since n^3/n^3 is 1 and 1/n^3 is inf., I get -1/2= -0.5

I don't know where is the mistake!

Can someone help?
