I've can't seem to get this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\lim_{\substack{x\rightarrow 1}} \frac {\sqrt{x} -

x^2} {1 - \sqrt{x}} [/tex]

I know it equals 3... I got that from the using numbers close to 1 method and from the dervative of the top over the derivative of the bottom method... trouble is, I don't think that's how he wants us to find the answer because we haven't learned the derivative method yet. :yuck: any help would be awesome.
