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!

    Find the limit of the sequence 2ln(1+3n) - ln(4+n^2) What I did: lim as n approach inf of an = 2*lim ln (1+3n)/(4+n^2) = 2 * lim ln (1/n^2 + 3n/n^2) / (4/n^2 + n^2/n^2) = 2 * lim ln (1/n^2 + 3/n) / (4/n^2 + 1) = 2 * lim ln

    Question: If lim(f(x)/x)=-5 as x approaches 0, then lim(x^2(f(-1/x^2))) as x approaches infinity is equal to (a) 5 (b) -5 (c) -infinity (d) 1/5 (e) none of these The answer key says (a) 5. So this is what I know: Since
