Find the indicated limits.
Lim x> 1 sqrt 1  1/ x1

The solution cannot be deciphered without some grouping symbols to indicate what the problem is.

Lim x approaching 1
(Square root 11)/( x1)
Typing this from my iPad. Pain in the a**. 
it still is not clear. (sqrt 1 1) is zero.

Yes, I know. The book has the answer as 1/2. Maybe book is wrong.
