To find the relative extrema of the function f(x) = (x^2 - 3x - 4)/(x-2), you first find the derivative f'(x) using the quotient rule. Then, you set f'(x) equal to zero to find critical points. Finally, you test these critical points to determine whether they correspond to relative extrema.

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.
