Hi guys, I have the answers of the question but I didn't understand how? especially numerator part? I know the denominator is factored out and became (x+2)(x1) please look at the question and try to explain me. I appreciate.

also can you try the same limit with (3x^2ax+a+6)/ (x^2+x2)

As the denominator is zero at the limiting value (2) we need 2x$^2$ + ax + a + 6 = 0. We then have the indeterminate form 0/0. So, substitute x = 2 into 2x$^2$ + ax + a + 6 = 0 and solve for a. Apply the same method for your other problem.
