For the first, note that e.g.:

and note also that, for this limit, you need only consider values of x close to -3. And similarly for of course.

The same trick may also work for the other question, I haven't tried.

[edit: you probably also want to compute the limit as and to check that they are the same]

The same trick applies for (the second question) but you will need to apply another method as well as you obtain an indeterminate form.

These are all indeterminate forms.

Sorry, I should have been mor eclear, I meant for the second question, after using your method and cancelling down, you still had a indeterminate form (unlike the first question which after canelling down).

Oh I see. I haven't yet had a chance to try this question so I'll have a go tomorrow and see what happens.
