# How do you find the limit lim 5^(x^2-2x+1) as x->3?

#### Answer:

First thing to do is...

#### Explanation:

For these sorts of limit problems, the first thing to try is always just to substitute the value that x is approaching, and see what the function evaluates to. If it's defined and has a value at that point, then your work is done.

Here, if $x = 3$, then ${x}^{2} - 2 x + 1 = 9 - 6 + 1 = 4$

So you have ${5}^{4} = 625$

GOOD LUCK
