The problems states, Evaluate the limit using L'Hopital's rule:
$\displaystyle \lim_{x \to \0}(1-5x)^{\frac{1}{x}}$
Can someone walk me through how to make this into a fraction so that I can attempt the rule? Thanks!

You take the logarithm: find $\displaystyle \lim_{x\to{0}}}\ln\left((1-5x)^{\frac{1}{x}}\right)=\lim_{x\to{0}}}\frac{\ln( 1-5x)}{x}$ and if the answer is L, the answer to the original problem is $\displaystyle e^L$.
