[1/(2+x) - 1/2] / x

I simplified the fraction and got:

[x / 2(2+x)] / x

and with further simplification:

x / x(4+2x)

How do I solve this without using L'Hopital's rule?

[1/(2+x) - 1/2] / x <=> 1/x(2+x) - 1/2x <=> 1/2x-1/(2x+4)-1/2x <=> -1/(2x+4)

When x goes to 0, the solution is goes towards -1/4 = -1/(2*0+4)

The partial fraction of found by solving

1/x(2+x) = a/x + b/(x+2)
