Is the answer is correct ??
lim ((x^10)1)/(x1)
x>0
is the answer is 1 ???

Yes, the limit is 1. The problem for this function is when x>>1

thanks

if it is 1 how would be the answer ???

There is no problem with
lim ((x^10)1)/(x1)
x>0
because you can substitute x=0 and get 1 as bobpursley said.
You probably meant
lim ((x^10  1)/(x1)
x>1
In that case (x^10  1) รท (x1)
= x^9 + x^8 + ... + x + 1
and you have
lim x^9 + x^8 + ... + x + 1
x>1
= 10

What do you mean by "how would be the answer"? The answer to this problem is 1.
