Another one I'm not sure about is the limit as x approaches infinity of (x^2)/lnx

I took the derivative of the top and bottom and got 2x/(1/x) which is the same thing as 2x^2. Can I keep going or do I just say that the limit does not exist?

  • Calculus -

    you can keep going, but if you do, you're in trouble.

    2x^2 = 2x^2/1
    using the Rule, you'd have

    4x/0 --> oo

    So, the limit is as you found it, 2x^2 --> oo

    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?
