To find the equation of the tangent line of f(x) = sqrt(x+1)/sqrt(x+2) at x=4, we need to find the derivative of f(x) and evaluate it at x=4. The derivative of f(x) can be found using the quotient rule:

f'(x) = [sqrt(x+2) * (1/2) * (x+1)^(-1/2) - sqrt(x+1) * (1/2) * (x+2)^(-1/2)] / (x+2)

Evaluating f'(x) at x=4, we get:

f'(4) = [sqrt(4+2) * (1/2) * (4+1)^(-1/2) - sqrt(4+1) * (1/2) * (4+2)^(-1/2)] / (4+2)

Simplifying this expression, we find:

f'(4) = [sqrt(6) * (1/2) * (5)^(-1/2) - sqrt(5) * (1/2) * (6)^(-1/2)] / 6

Simplifying further, we get:

f'(4) = (sqrt(6) / (2 * sqrt(5))) - (sqrt(5) / (2 * sqrt(6))) / 6

Combining the terms, we have:

f'(4) = (sqrt(6) * sqrt(6) - sqrt(5) * sqrt(5)) / (2 * sqrt(5) * sqrt(6)) / 6

Simplifying the numerator, we get:

f'(4) = (6 - 5) / (2 * sqrt(5) * sqrt(6)) / 6

Simplifying further, we have:

f'(4) = 1 / (2 * sqrt(5) * sqrt(6)) / 6

Therefore, the equation of the tangent line of f(x) at x=4 is:

y = f(4) + f'(4) * (x - 4)

Substituting the values of f(4) and f'(4) into the equation, we get:

y = sqrt(4+1)/sqrt(4+2) + 1 / (2 * sqrt(5) * sqrt(6)) / 6 * (x - 4)

Simplifying this equation, we have:

y = sqrt(5)/sqrt(6) + 1 / (12 * sqrt(5) * sqrt(6)) * (x - 4)

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.
