    Limit Problem

    This is a re-post of a question asked by battleman13.

    Lastly evaluating a limit... I think I'm doing it right but confused. I don't think it's this simple.

    I'm evaluating the limit as X approaches E from the right of
    ((X - LN(X)) \ (LN(X) - 1))

    It works out to E - LN(E) in the numerator which is E - 1
    and LN(E) - 1 in the denomiator which is 1 -1 = 0

    I am left with E-1 / 0 which doesn't seem right to me.

    The limit does not exist since the left hand and right hand limits are different (being -oo and +oo respectively).
