limit

find the limit: lim x approaches 32 ((x^(1/5) - 2)/(x-32)) Note: this is not a HW problem, it is not in the textbook.

I understand you must multiply by the conjugate, however I do not know what to do with the result of that multiplication. I cannot get anything to cancel, I am still left with a factor of (x-32) in the denominator, which makes the denominator zero.
