Answer:

# -1/3#.

Explanation:

Note that, #(x+2)/(2x^2+5x+2)=(x+2)/{(x+2)(2x+1)}#.

#:. (x+2)/(2x^2+5x+2)=1/(2x+1), if xne-2#.

Now, as # x to -2+, x gt -2," hence, "x ne -2#.

#:. lim_(x to -2+)(x+2)/(2x^2+5x+2)#,

#=lim_(x to -2+)1/(2x+1)#,

#=1/{2(-2)+1}#.

# rArr lim_(x to -2+)(x+2)/(2x^2+5x+2)=-1/3#.
