To solve the rational equation 5/(y-2) = y+2, you can start by multiplying both sides of the equation by (y-2) to eliminate the denominator. This gives you 5 = (y+2)(y-2). Expanding the right side of the equation, you get 5 = y^2 - 4. Rearranging the equation, you have y^2 - 4 - 5 = 0. Simplifying further, you get y^2 - 9 = 0. Factoring the equation, you have (y-3)(y+3) = 0. Setting each factor equal to zero, you get y-3 = 0 or y+3 = 0. Solving for y, you find y = 3 or y = -3. Therefore, the solutions to the rational equation are y = 3 and y = -3.

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.
