1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
lim ( f(x)/(x^{2}) )= 8 x→0 Then what is... a)lim ( f(x) ) x→0 b)lim ( f(x)/x ) x→0 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution tried separating the limits (lim x→0 f(x))(lim x→0 1/(x^{2})) = 8 but the lim x→0 1/(x^{2}) is ∞ ... soooo i dont know...

draw the graph of 1/x^{2} (near zero) …
roughly what do you think the graph of f(x) will have to look like if f(x)/x^{2} > 8 ?

so if the numerator has to be zero too..
then the lim x>0 f(x) is zero??????????

what would lim f(x) / x as x>0 be then..
if (lim x>0 f(x)) / (lim x>0 x) 0/0...or dne?
