To add or subtract the given expression, 7/(x-5) - (2+x)/(x-5), we first need to find a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is (x-5).

To add or subtract fractions with the same denominator, we can simply combine the numerators and keep the common denominator.

So, the expression simplifies to (7 - (2+x))/(x-5).

Further simplifying, we have (7 - 2 - x)/(x-5), which becomes (5 - x)/(x-5).

Therefore, the simplified expression is (5 - x)/(x-5).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
