$-6$

## Step-by-step explanation

Problem to solve:

$\lim_{x\to0}\left(x^2-5x-6\right)$
1

The limit of a sum of two functions is equal to the sum of the limits of each function: $\displaystyle\lim_{x\to c}(f(x)\pm g(x))=\lim_{x\to c}(f(x))\pm\lim_{x\to c}(g(x))$

$\lim_{x\to0}\left(x^2\right)+\lim_{x\to0}\left(-5x\right)+\lim_{x\to0}\left(-6\right)$
2

The limit of a constant is just the constant

$\lim_{x\to0}\left(x^2\right)+\lim_{x\to0}\left(-5x\right)-6$

$-6$
$\lim_{x\to0}\left(x^2-5x-6\right)$
