is it infinity

Just as an alternative.. If you can use the fact that for , then notice that: And use squeeze theorem ..
jhevon, how would u take the limit

yes. thats what i tried doing in the first place, but i think i did it incorrectly.

= [(ln3)3^x + (ln5)5^x]/(3^x + 5^x) as the limit goes to infinity. I really dont know what to do from there

since and as
