Homework Help: Finding a limit

  1. Nov 12, 2006 #1
    I'm trying to find a limit for this equation:

    Now I understand I can factor (1-1/k^2) and look for cancellation, but I just can't figure out how to do that in this case.

    Do the (a² - b²) = (a-b)(a+b) bit, then substitute in values of k and write down the first few terms multiplied together.
    You will see the cancelling out.
