1)Find derivatives separately

2) Divide the numerator's derivative by denominator's derivative

3)If on putting the limit you get a definite answer than game over!!

4) If not than go to step 1

---------------------------------------------------

I strongly recommend reading examples here

The answer of this question will be -1/2 (after you follow above steps) (Happy)

Denominator =D Numerator =N

Derivative of Numerator ...(Also called N'(x))

Derivative of Denominator ...(Also called D'(x) )

According to the l'Hopital's rule

So using this

Your Limit now becomes

Once again applying the same rule this limit becomes

Now put the limit
