4. There is no problem with
lim ((x^10)-1)/(x-1)
x-->0

because you can substitute x=0 and get 1 as bobpursley said.

You probably meant
lim ((x^10 - 1)/(x-1)
x-->1

In that case (x^10 - 1) ÷ (x-1)
= x^9 + x^8 + ... + x + 1

and you have
lim x^9 + x^8 + ... + x + 1
x-->1

= 10

5. What do you mean by "how would be the answer"? The answer to this problem is 1.
