Question 01 (c) 

Evaluate the following limit. 
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 hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

What does the graph of look like? What happens to it as x goes to infinity? 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. We will consider the function inside the limit as the sum of two functions: and . If we take their limits separately, we get:
diverges to We can see that as x goes to infinity, the term is decreasing towards zero and the term grows larger and larger. So, as x goes to infinity the combined value of will grow more and more negative. Thus we have: diverges to
