Question 01 (i) 

Compute

Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hints below. Read the first one and consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! If after a while you are still stuck, go for the next hint. 
Hint 1 

Consider the rational function . Is it discontinuous and/or undefined at ? 
Hint 2 

Can the limit be computed by direct evaluation (i.e., plugging in a value for )? 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used all the hints, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Solution 

Found a typo? Is this solution unclear? Let us know here.
Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. The function is continuous at since rational functions are continuous everywhere they are defined (i.e., have a nonzero denominator). Thus the limit in question can be computed by simply substituting in . Namely,
