Problem to solve:

$\lim_{x\to2}\left(\frac{x^2-x-2}{x-2}\right)$

Choose the solving method

1

Factor the trinomial $x^2-x-2$ finding two numbers that multiply to form $-2$ and added form $-1$

$\begin{matrix}\left(1\right)\left(-2\right)=-2\\ \left(1\right)+\left(-2\right)=-1\end{matrix}$

Learn how to solve limits by factoring problems step by step online.

$\begin{matrix}\left(1\right)\left(-2\right)=-2\\ \left(1\right)+\left(-2\right)=-1\end{matrix}$

Learn how to solve limits by factoring problems step by step online. Find the limit of (x^2-x-2)/(x-2) as x approaches 2. Factor the trinomial x^2-x-2 finding two numbers that multiply to form -2 and added form -1. Thus. Simplifying. Evaluate the limit \lim_{x\to2}\left(x+1\right) by replacing all occurrences of x by 2.
