Using L'Hôpital's rule, evaluate lim of xe^(-x) as x approaches infinity

• calculus -

X=Lim xe^(-x)
x->∞
=Lim x/e^x
x->∞

L'hôpital's rule is applicable if direct evaluation results in an indeterminate form, which is the case here.
To apply the rule, differentiate both numerator and denominator to give
X=Lim 1/e^x
x->∞
=0

The limit as x approaches infinity of (e^x+x)^(1/x). I got that it diverges, but I'm not sure if I made a mistake. My work: lim(e+x^(1/x)) lim(e+(1/x^x)) lim(ex^x+1)/x^x l'hopital:lim(e^(e(lnx+1))+1)/e^(lnx+1) diverges?

Using l'hopital's rule, find the limit as x approaches infinity of (e^(6/x)-6x)^(X/2) I know l'hopital's rule, but this is seeming to be nightmare. I just don't seem to get anywhere.

if i define the function f(x)= x^3-x^2-3x-1 and h(x) = f(x)/g(x), then evaluate the limit (3h(x)+f(x)-2g(x), assuming you know the following things about h(x): h is continuous everywhere except when x = -1 lim as x approaches infinity …

This is a question related to L'hopital's rule. lim x -> -infinity of ((x)(e^x)) This thing is weird because I apply l'hopital's rule yet I never receive the correct answer which is supposedly = 0. It just stays in the form [-infinity …
