1. My problem is such:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the limit of [tex]\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \sqrt{9x^2+x} -3x [/tex]

2. No relevant equations

3. I multiplied [tex] \frac{\sqrt{9x^2+x} -3x}{1} * \frac{\sqrt{9x^2+x} +3x}{\sqrt{9x^2+x} +3x} = \frac{x}{\sqrt{9x^2+x} +3x} [/tex]

I am now quite confused as to where to go from here. My teacher will accept tabled values, but I wish to prove my answer. I would greatly appreciate any help.

I did attempt to divide by the highest power in the denominator, but all that got me was a mess:

[tex] \frac{1}{\frac{\sqrt{9x^2+x}}{x} +3} [/tex]

Ok, I'm not certain this is valid, but...:

I'll factor out an x under the radical, then attempt to simplify

[tex] \frac{1}{\frac{\sqrt{9x^2*(1+\frac}{x}{9x^2}{x} +3} [/tex]

Hmm... I'm having trouble with tex and that.
