For instance:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1/(e^.5t) + 1/(e^-7t)

As t grows larger, the left term goes to 0, but the right term goes to infinity.

Would I be correct in saying that the limit of the sum is infinity because the (absolute value of the) coefficient of t in the term that tends to infinity is larger than the coefficient of t in the term that tends to 0?

What if both t's had the same coefficient?
