1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the limit of x^2/(x-1) as x goes to 1 from the left. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution It doesn't seem I can factor anything, but could I assume that since the numerator is a constant and the denomination is going to be negative because it's <1 then it's going to negative infinity? Is there anyway to show this algebraically? Thanks.
