[tex]\lim_{x\to\,-\infty}x + \sqrt{x^2 + 2x}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried conjugating by multiplying both the numerator and denominator by [tex]x + \sqrt{x^2 + 2x}[/tex], which gave me [tex]\frac{2x}{x - \sqrt{x^2 + 2x}}[/tex], but from there I have no idea on what to do.
