Your answer is entirely correct!

Your answer is entirely correct but you could have done it easier and shorter.

@sbhatnagar:

You're right, but the problem is that for some reasons l'Hopital is used in cases where it's the only option and avoided in cases where you could solve the limit in a different way. - Sep 26th 2011, 09:53 AMHallsofIvyRe: Compute the Limit: Question 3
And, of course, here we do not know if Sparky has covered L'Hopital's rule or even differentiation yet in his class.
