To simplify the rational expression (x^3+x^2)/(x+1), you can factor out an x^2 from the numerator, which gives you x^2(x+1)/(x+1). Then, you can cancel out the common factor of (x+1) in the numerator and denominator, resulting in x^2 as the simplified expression.

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.
