Hello everybody. I just need a little help with some very basic Calculus. Actually I need help with the Algebra part, but it is a Calculus problem. Here is the problem. Lim x->-2 of (x^2+3x+2)/(2-|x|) That is it and I know the answer is -1, but I cannot get that |x| out of the denomenator, I have tried to multiply by the conjugate, but that did not seem to work. Thanks in andave for any advice.
