I know the answer, but I don't know how to get it.

2. Relevant equations

If picture doesn't work: limit x->1 (x-1)/((square root(x+3) - 2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that when you plug in 1, the answer becomes 0/0, which means I need to factor. I don't know how to factor this equation, though.
