Find the indicated one sided limits of f.

f(x)= (x^2+8)/(x^2-25)

what is the limit as x goes to -5+(from the right side)?

What is the limit as x goes to 5+(from the right side?

  • Calculus -

    if x = -4.99
    f = -329
    if x = -4.999
    f = -3299
    negative infinity
    numerator --> 33
    denominator ---> - 0 because x^2 always < 25

    opposite for x>5 by a little
    ---> + oo
