Fairly simple limit, but tricky variables
Hey everyone. I need help evalutating the limit of (1+ p/q)^qx as x approaches infinity. I know I need to use L'Hospital's rule, but the p and q are throwing me off and I can't find the right answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated (Bow)

Are you sure that is limit exist? maybe you make a mistake tpiying

Do you know this limit: $
\mathop {\lim }\limits_{x \to \infty } \left( {1 + \frac{1}
{x}} \right)^x = e
$
