Need some help with this one:

lim x-> inf of (1-e^x) / (1+e^x)

The answer should be -1 but I don't get how that is so. When you plug in infinity you get -inf/inf right? How does this problem work out algebraically?

$\displaystyle \frac{1-e^{x}}{1+e^{x}}=\frac{e^{-x}-1}{e^{-x}+1},$ can you compute its limit now?
