  1. 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

    Question: If lim(f(x)/x)=-5 as x approaches 0, then lim(x^2(f(-1/x^2))) as x approaches infinity is equal to (a) 5 (b) -5 (c) -infinity (d) 1/5 (e) none of these The answer key says (a) 5. So this is what I know: Since

    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

    Note that pi lim arctan(x ) = ---- x -> +oo 2 Now evaluate / pi \ lim |arctan(x ) - -----| x x -> +oo \ 2 / I'm not exactly sure how to attempt it. I have tried h'opital's rule but I don't believe you can use it here. Any help

    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.

    Evaluate the limit as x -> Infinity [5x-sqrt(25x^2+4x)] Direct substitution yields the indeterminate form Infinity - Infinity. Apparently, according to text book, I have to change that mess into something I can use L'Hopital's

    Use L’Hopital’s rule to find the limit of this sequence (n^100)/(e^n) ...If you do L'Hop. Rule it would take forever, right? You would always get an (e^n) at the bottom and will have to use the L'Hop. rule 100 times to find

    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?
