# lim as t approaches infinity (t^2 + 2)/(t^3 + t^2 -1)? Would this be 0? Could you show me step by step. I believe we need to divid both top and bottom by the highest power which would be t^3???

`lim_(t->oo)(t^2+2)/(t^3+t^2-1)` `=lim_(t->oo)(t^3+t^2-1)/(t^3+t^2-1)-``lim_(t->oo)(t^3-3)/(t^3+t^2-1)=`

`=lim_(t->oo) 1- (t^3(1-3/t^3))/(t^3(1+1/t-1/t^2))=` `1-lim_(t->oo)(1-3/t^3)/(1+1/t-1/t^2)` `=1-1=0`
