I'm trying to find the limit of ((2x9) + 3)/x as x approaches 0. I know that with the original equation if x = 3 then it is 0/0. I tried using the reciprical trick and simplified it down to x/(((2x+9)+3), but that still leaves me without a limit. Is there something I am missing?

Something fishy on this one. 2(0)  9 < 0 How is that going to work under a square root and still have a Real limit?

No, I made a mistake. Instead of x appraches 0 it should be as x approaches 3. I tested it with an x value of 3 and it gave me 0/0. Sorry about the confusion

one last correction. It is as x apporaches 0, with x equaling 0. Sorry for the extra mistake, lol, long days of work.

The function (2x9) does not exist when x < 4.5
Thus limit at x > 0 does not make sense
