L'Hopital's rule

Find lim x>1+ of [(1/(x1))(1/lnx)].
Here is my work...
=(lnx(x1)) / ((x1)(lnx))
=(lnx1) / (lnx+ (x+1)/x)
This becomes(1/x) / ((1/x)+(1/x^2))
which becomes 1/ (1/x^2)
This equals 1/2. I understand the answer has to be 1/2, but I am having trouble figuring out where that negative sign is coming from. What have I missed? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

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?
