How do you find these limits using L'Hopital's rule?

1.

2.

In both cases, when I apply L'Hopitals rule, the derivative of the denominator won't allow me to solve because there ends up being a zero in there. ie

Thanks.

In both cases, you should have a negative power in the denominator which moves it up to the numerator. Be sure that you simplify the expression before evaluating.
