lim_{x\rightarrow-2}\frac{x^3 + 8}{x+2}

[/tex]

Ok, I have solved this using synthetic division in which the limit was 12, however I was wondering if there was a way to solve this without using synthetic division (seeing as I hate the process of it).

I've solved plenty of other indeterminate equations by factoring out a polynomial and then being able to cancel out so that I can then plug in x, but I wasn't able to do so with this one.

I'm just curious if there are any other ways to solve this specific limit.

Thanks
