# Exponential Limits

planauts
Hi, I am having trouble with this exponential limit problem.

## Homework Statement

$$\lim \ x \rightarrow 0 \ [ e^{-1/x}]$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

$$\lim x \rightarrow 0$$ e^(-x)^{-1}
$$\lim x \rightarrow 0$$ e^{-1}^{x}^{-1}
I don't think the second step is right. When i did that I ended up getting 1, which is incorrect.

EDIT: @Mentallic I fixed it, thanks.

Umm.. could you try fixing up your latex please. If you need a few characters to be exponentiated, type it as so: a^{bc}=$$a^{bc}$$ while a^bc=$$a^bc$$ so just replace your brackets with the curly brackets.
