Consider the limit
\(\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}\frac{2^x+4^x}{5^x-2^x}\)
Solve:
\(\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}\frac{2^x+4^x}{5^x-2^x}\)
Take \(2^x\) common from numerator and denominator
\(=\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}\frac{2^x(1+\frac{4^x}{2^x})}{2^x(\frac{5^x}{2^x}-1)}\)
\(=\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}\frac{2^x(1+(\frac{4}{2})^x)}{2^x((\frac{5}{2})^x-1)}\)
\(=\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}\frac{(1+2^x)}{((2.5)^x-1)}\)
\(=\frac{\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}(1+2^x)}{\lim_{x\rightarrow-\infty}((2.5)^x-1)}\)
\(=\frac{(1+2^{-\infty})}{(2.5^{-\infty}-1)}\)
\(=\frac{(1+0)}{(0-1)}\)
\(=-1\)
