Next, total it up:

Given that you began with a cubic, the solution is a quadratic, so you get:

Yes, you can get the original back by multiplying them together and adding the remainder:

Thus, you would have

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.
