In Problems 7-20, find each limit, if it exists. 11.   lim x → 2 4 x 3 − 8 x 2 4 x 3 − 16 x

To determine

To calculate: The value of the limit limx24x38x24x316x.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided limit is limx24x38x24x316x.

Formula used:

A limit limxcx can be simplified as,

limxcx=c

According to the property of difference of squares,

a2b2=(a+b)(ab)

Calculation:

Consider the provided limit,

limx24x38x24x316x

Simplify the limit by substituting 2 for x,

limx24x38x24x316x=4(2)38(2)24(2)316(2)=4(8)8(4)4(8)32=32323232=00

Since, the limit has 00 indeterminate form at x=2
