    You should have 0/0 not 6/0. In any case, try a trick similar to what you did with the radical in the denominator.

    Well if you plug the four in initially you get:


    Your trick did not work nor does using the other radical as Mathdope suggests.

    But, never fear, 0/0 limits call for one man.....


    Since it is indeterminate form, it is eligible for L'Hopital's rule. That should make it work.

    Multiplying by 2+sqrt(x) does so work. You can then cancel the factor that's going to zero in the numerator and the denominator.
