To find the limit of (2x^2-x-3)/(x+1) as x approaches -1, we can substitute -1 into the expression and simplify. By doing so, we get (-2-1-3)/(-1+1) = -6/0. Since division by zero is undefined, the limit does not exist.

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.
