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

Find the limit as (x,y) approaches (0,0):

2. Relevant equations

x^2/(x+y)

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried replacing y with 0, mx, x^2, etc. (and likewise with x), and all give me a limit of zero. So I tried to think of ways I could use the definition of a limit, squeeze theorem, L'Hopital's rule, etc. to prove it, but there does not appear to be a way. I'm starting to think that a limit might not even exist. Is there something elementary I'm overlooking?
