L'Hopital's Rule Example 3

For Students 11th - Higher Ed
In this video, Sal starts with an example where the limit is not indeterminate but rather undefined and therefore cannot be solved using L'Hoptial's rule. He shows how you can rewrite the problem algebraically so that the rule can be...

L'Hopital's Rule Example 1

For Students 11th - Higher Ed
After applying L'Hopital's Rule once and showing that the limit is still indeterminate, Sal applies the rule a second and third time before arriving at a limit that exists. He then shows that given that the final limit exists, so do the...
