## Homework Statement

Why does the limit as x approaches 0 of

x^2 + 5 / 3x go to infinity (with 0 as an essential disc.) but without the +5, the function goes to 0?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried approaching evaluating the limit of the function by comparing the exponents of the numerator and denominator and that seems to work if the +5 isn't there. What is the explanation for this difference?
