Here is the question,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Evaluate this limit:

[tex]\lim_{x\rightarrow 1} \frac{x^3-1}{x^2-1}[/tex]

since there is no common factor, this limit does not exist, correct?

Maybe I am missing a basic algebra rule for the numerator to find a common factor.

Thank you.
