Limit test help

  1. Mar 24, 2007 #1
    I am having trouble with this limit, i am to do a Limit test but I just don't see it.

    Step 1.
    Lim sqrt(x) / x
    x --> Infinity

    Step 2.
    My professor this goes down to

    Lim 1 / sqrt(x)
    x --> Infinity

    and the limit is then 0

    What I am not sure about is from steps 1 to step 2.

    I tried the latex it wouldn't work for me, sorry.

    Your professor simply divided the numerator and the denominator both by [itex]\sqrt{x}[/itex].
