Homework Help: Limits Question

  1. Sep 18, 2005 #1
    I'm having trouble with this question

    Find the one sided limit, if it exists

    I haven't been able to simplify the top or bottom, if someone could get me started, thanks!

    As x approaches 3 from the right, the top approaches the constant 3 while the bottom becomes small without value. What happens if you divide 3 by increasingly small values?

    Note: Can you explain why the question asks only for the limit from the right?
