To solve the equation ( \frac{x + 2}{5} = -\frac{3}{2} ) by clearing the fractions, multiply both sides of the equation by the least common multiple (LCM) of the denominators, which is ( 10 ). This results in ( 2(x + 2) = -15 ). Then solve for ( x ) by distributing and simplifying: ( 2x + 4 = -15 ). Next, isolate ( x ) by subtracting 4 from both sides: ( 2x = -19 ). Finally, divide both sides by 2: ( x = -\frac{19}{2} ). Therefore, the solution to the equation is ( x = -\frac{19}{2} ).

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.
