# Math Help - How to find this limit?

1. ## How to find this limit?

(x + 1) / x^2 (x+7)

As x approaches zero, without using l'hopitals rule or anything like that. I'm pretty sure that there is no way I can factor/cancel....what else could be done in this situation?

2. (x + 1) / x^2 (x+7)
But which is the problem?
A) $\frac{x+1}{x^2(x+7)}$ or B) $\frac{x+1}{x^2}(x+7)$?

3. It is A

4. Well then, the numerator is bounded around 1.
But the denominator approaches zero through the positive numbers.
What is the limit of 1 divided by ever smaller positive number?
