1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data SYNTHESIS Find limit as x approaches 3 of : (x^3-27)/x-3 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I typed it into my calculator and got x^3 - (27)/(x-3) where x^3 wasn't divided by x-3. I really do not know where to start. I know the answer is 27 from the back of the book. I was thinking it was something like x^3- (3)^3/ (x-3) and then you can cancel out one of the x-3 but I still cannot get 27 and if you plugin 3 into the original equation you get 0.
