(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Hi all, this may sound trivial but I've been like cranking my brains on this. Probably I just cant see it. Will need someone to shed some light.

Taking the limit of [(1/s)(a-b)/(s^2 + cs + a)] as s-> 0

2. Relevant equations

Stated above

3. The attempt at a solution

By using L'Hopital rule, I know this limit tends to 0 itself. However, I just cant manipulate the expression algebraically to obtain the same limit of 0. I'm just unable to cancel out that 'solo' s at the denominator. Hence, it appears to me that the limit shoots up to infinity as s-> 0 through algebraic means. I know this is incorrect but I just couldnt figure it out.

Please kindly help me in guiding me along.

Thanks!
