I got 1 as an answer, but I want to check if that's right. I heard it could be something else so I'm unsure and doubtful of my answer.

**Steve**, Monday, September 16, 2013 at 2:17pmtake derivatives, so the limit is

2/√(4u+1) / 1 = 2/3

**Ezra**, Monday, September 16, 2013 at 2:22pmI did it by multiplying by the conjugate. I'm not sure of how to do it any other way. Can you explain how that works?

**Steve**, Monday, September 16, 2013 at 2:28pmcheck your text for L'Hospital's (or L'Hôpital's) Rule. That is the usual tool used to evaluate limits when you have the form

0/0 or ∞/∞ or 0*∞

**Reiny**, Monday, September 16, 2013 at 4:46pmIn most introductory Calculus courses, the study of limits precedes the concept of the derivative, since limits are used to develop the derivative by First Principles, so ...

using your idea of conjugates, .....

Lim ( √(4u+1) - 3)/(u-2) , u--->2

= Lim ( √(4u+1) - 3)/(u-2) * (√(4u+1) + 3))/ (√(4u+1) + 3)) , u--->2

= Lim ( 4u+1 - 9)/ ((√(4u+1) + 3))(u-2))

= lim 4(u-2)/ (√(4u+1) + 3))(x-2)

= lim 4/ (√(4u+1) + 3)) , as u--->2

= 4/6 = 2/3
