    Exclamation 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

\mathop {\lim }\limits_{x \to \infty } \left( {1 + \frac{1}<br />
{x}} \right)^x  = e<br />
