# In Problems 7-20, find each limit, if it exists. 13.   lim x → 3 x 2 − 16 x − 3

To determine

To calculate: The value of the limit limx3x216x3.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided limit is limxâ†’3x2âˆ’16xâˆ’3.

Formula used:

A limit limxâ†’cx can be simplified as,

limxâ†’cx=c

According to the property of difference of squares,

a2âˆ’b2=(a+b)(aâˆ’b)

Calculation:

Consider the provided limit,

limxâ†’3x2âˆ’16xâˆ’3

Simplify the limit by substituting 3 for x,

limxâ†’3x2âˆ’16xâˆ’3
