Find the limit.

lim 5-x/(x^2-25)

x-->5

Here is the work I have so far:

lim 5-x/(x^2-25) = lim 5-x/(x-5)(x+5)

x-->5 x-->5

lim (1/x+5) = lim 1/10

x-->5 x-->5

I just wanted to double check with someone and see if the answer is supposed to be positive or negative. For the lim The answer I received is

x-->5 positive 1/10

Please confirm with me if this answer is correct! Thank you!
