the answer is 0 but I don't know how to get itQuote:

Find the derivative of ln e^u/u

lim

h-> 0 square root of (25-h) -5/h

The answer is 1/10 but I once again don't know how to do it.

If it's supposed to be 0 then you must mean

by log rules

If I'm reading it right it's

Multiply the numerator and denominator by

This comes out to be

Now try the limit again. - Nov 3rd 2008, 08:00 PMJimDavid

No, I'm pretty sure the answer is negative. I just checked the limit on a calculator and it confirms it's -1/10.
