(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data, is best expressed in the photograph, as this is a fairly detailed problem:

[PLAIN]http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/3972/pleasehelp.jpg [Broken]

2. all equations included in the image

3. the attempt at the solution is in the image as well

When I take the limit of that last equation, I get a nonsensical answer--infinity. I am well sure that its not infinity. If anything, it must be negative infinity.

What am I doing wrong? Is it my simplification? Is there a strategic error?

Please help!!
