## Main Question or Discussion Point

Can anyone please show me how to prove the problem below using epsilons and deltas. Thanks a lot...I'm so stuck...

I got through this step: /(-5x-5)/(3+x)/ < Epsilon, and don't know where to go from there. Plz help me out, thanx very much for ur valuable time.

***Prove, using epsilons and deltas, that the limit as x approaches (-1) of the function f(x) = 10/(3 + x) is 5. (Can you think of a pedagogical reason for that change?) Hint: you'll have to fiddle around and you'll probably have to finally choose your delta to be the smaller of two numbers.****
