# Find the value of $\operatorname{lim}_{x\rightarrow3}(x+5)$ in W|A?

GROUPS:
 Hi All, I was trying to find the value of $\operatorname{lim}_{x\rightarrow3}(x+5)$ using wolframalpha api but I am not getting the result. Actually it is limit of x tending to 3 for the expression x+5. The api call which I am making is http://api.wolframalpha.com/v2/query? input=%5Coperatorname%7Blim%7D_%7Bx%5Crightarrow3%7D%28x%2B5%29&appid=***********************&format=image I will appreciate if someone can help me in fixing this issue.Regards Hemant Dhingra
 This seemed to work for me https://api.wolframalpha.com/v2/query?appid=*****************&input=limit%20x%2B5%2C%20x-%3E3 where the input without the escape coding is limit x+5, x->3
