lim of x as it approaches infinity for sqrt of x^2 -1/2x+1

asked by musuma
  1. x^2 -1/2x+1 = x/2 - 1/4 - 3/(4(2x+1))
    as x-->oo, that goes to oo as well.

    Discard all of the numerator and denominator except the highest powers. For large x, your function just looks like x/2. Big, big limit.

    Are these correct? lim x->0 (x)/(sqrt(x^2+4) - 2) I get 4/0= +/- infinity so lim x->0+ = + infinity? and lim x->0- = + infinity? lim x->1 (x^2 - 5x + 6)/(x^2 - 3x + 2) I get 2/0, so lim x-> 1+ = - infinity? and lim
