    Hi Lone21,

    Since the numerator and the denominator both go to inf. as x goes to inf.
    We can apply L'Hospital's Rule:
    As {x\rightarrow infinity}, \lim \frac{(\ln x)^3}{x^2}=\lim \frac{3(ln x)^2 * \frac{1}{x}}{2x}= \lim \frac{3(ln x)^2 }{2x^2} =...

    Just keep applying L'Hospital's Rule and simplify your answer in each step.
