We can factor the polynomial $x^3-x^2+5x-5$ using the rational root theorem, which guarantees that for a polynomial of the form $a_nx^n+a_{n-1}x^{n-1}+\dots+a_0$ there is a rational root of the form $\pm\frac{p}{q}$, where $p$ belongs to the divisors of the constant term $a_0$, and $q$ belongs to the divisors of the leading coefficient $a_n$. List all divisors $p$ of the constant term $a_0$, which equals $-5$

Learn how to solve limits by direct substitution problems step by step online. Find the limit of (x^2+8x+-9)/(x^3-x^25x+-5) as x approaches 5. We can factor the polynomial x^3-x^2+5x-5 using the rational root theorem, which guarantees that for a polynomial of the form a_nx^n+a_{n-1}x^{n-1}+\dots+a_0 there is a rational root of the form \pm\frac{p}{q}, where p belongs to the divisors of the constant term a_0, and q belongs to the divisors of the leading coefficient a_n. List all divisors p of the constant term a_0, which equals -5. Next, list all divisors of the leading coefficient a_n, which equals 1. The possible roots \pm\frac{p}{q} of the polynomial x^3-x^2+5x-5 will then be. Trying all possible roots, we found that 1 is a root of the polynomial. When we evaluate it in the polynomial, it gives us 0 as a result.
