Not really related to game programming, so feel free to ignore this post. If you're still reading, then I ask for your help with a small part of my math assignment concerning slant asymptotes. My task is to find the m and b in the equation:
lim          [f(x) - (mx + b)] = 0
x->infinite

Where I have the f(x) = x^(1/3)*(1-x)^(2/3) The m I found by solving this:
lim     f(x)/x
x->inf

which leads to m = 1 Then I need to find the b by solving:
lim    [f(x)-mx]
x->inf

And I'm stuck when I get to:
lim    cubicroot(x(1-x)^2) - x
x->inf

where I have no idea where to go next... Can anyone help me? I'm not asking you to give me the answer, at least not without an explaination as to how you got there. Thanks in advance =)
