  1. Yes, -12. I cheated and graphed it.

  2. 8/h -> infinity as h -> 0, so I don't see how the above expression can tend to anything other than minus infinity.

    How do we evaluate limit of, lim x-> 0 [ln(x+1)/( (2^x) - 1)] I tried using the substitution x+1 = e^k , when x tends to 0 so does k, which gave out, lim k->0 [ k/((2^((e^k) - 1)) -1 ) ] which I simplified into( for the ease of
