How To: Calculate a limit by getting a common denominator

Calculate a limit by getting a common denominator

This video explores how to get the limit by getting a common denominator. When you try and plug in a limit, for example when the denominator goes to zero, you can get yourself into a situation where you get the answer (0/0) which is mathematically irrelevant. To solve this problem, you must find a common denominator and split the problem up into its various parts. By setting common denominators in the numerator, you can then flip the fraction around allowing you to properly calculate the limit. You can use this trick whenever you have something that is seemingly divided by 0, and this will help you avoid improperly saying the limit is infinity.
