In Exercises 7–30, calculate the limit algebraically. If the limit does not exist, say why. lim x → 4 x 2 + 3 x x 2 − 8 x + 16

To determine

To calculate: The value of limx4x2+3xx28x+16 algebraically and provide reason if limit does not exist.

Explanation

Given information:

The provided limit is limx4x2+3xx28x+16.

Formula used:

Continuity of closed form function theorem:

Every function that is closed is continuous on its domain. If f is a closed form function and f(a) is defined, then limxaf(x) exists and limxaf(x)=f(a).

Calculation:

Consider the limit, limx4x2+3xx28x+16

Where, f(x)=x2+3xx28x+16

As, f(x)=x2+3xx28x+16 is a closed function and its domain does not include x=4, so the limit can be obtained by simplifying the function.

Simplify the function f(x),

f(x)=x2+3xx28x+16=x(x+3)(x4)2

But the function f(x) cannot be simplified further in order to remove the (x4) term from the denominator
