Solution

we will use :

Example 2:

Solution :

Direct substitution gives the indeterminate form 0/0. The numerator can be separated into the

product of the two binomials (x+5) and (x-2).

So the limit is equivalent to

From here, we can simply divide (x - 2) out of the fraction. We do not have to worry about (x

- 2) being equal to 0, since in the context of this limit, the expression can be treated as if x

will never equal 2.

This gives us

The expression inside the limit is now linear, so the limit can be

found by direct substitution. This obtains 2 + 5 = 7.

We then can say that
