I am looking to use squeeze theorem to find the horizontal asymptote(s) of 1/(sqrt(x^2+1) +x). I can figure it out by dividing by x but not with squeeze theorem. Is this to advanced for this site? OpenStudy (anonymous):

I hope it's not. Unfortunately, I've only touched on squeeze theorem briefly. OpenStudy (anonymous):

All I know is that vertical asymptotes stop the squeeze theorem working for things like tanx OpenStudy (amistre64):

$\frac{1}{\sqrt{x^2+1} +x}*\frac{-\sqrt{x^2+1} +x}{-\sqrt{x^2+1} +x}$ $\frac{-\sqrt{x^2+1} +x}{-(x^2+1) +x^2}$ $\lim_{x->\inf}\sqrt{x^2+1} -x$ maybe OpenStudy (anonymous):

I actually started with what you ended with. I want to use Squeeze Theorem to prove that the limit is 0 f(x) <= g(x) <= h(x) then if lim f(x) = lim g(x) = L then the lim h(x) = L too.... I think I am going to let this one go. It has taken up to much of my day. I think this site is going to be very helpful though :) OpenStudy (amistre64):

:) at least i got back to the beginning of it lol OpenStudy (anonymous):

are you in calculus? OpenStudy (amistre64):

im in calc2 at the moment, but have taught myself alot more OpenStudy (anonymous):

@JaredP:Sqeeze theorem is not much help for competitive mathematics (say entrance exams) as L'hopitals rule is much faster.however,you could use math.stackexchange.com for a rigorous discussion. OpenStudy (amistre64):

@amistre64 Ya I am doing Calculus 1 right now via correspondance. I have been out of school for 7 years, it's taking me quite a lot of time to figure this stuff out, but it's slowly making sense. At first I thought I was going to die! ;) OpenStudy (amistre64):

keep at it, it gets better and funner towards the end ;) good luck
