Evaluate the limit if it exists or show it does not exist.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

limit as (x,y) approaches (0,0) (2x^2y)/(x^2+2y^2)

Had this problem on a test and got points taken off - I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong. Obviously when we plug in (0,0) we get 0/0 which isn't allowed.

I let x=y and ended up with (2y^3)/(3y^2) which reduces to (2y)/3. Wouldn't the limit still be 0?

Thanks for the help.
