[tex] \lim_{x\rightarrow 0} \frac{xe^2x+xe^x-2e^2x+2e^x}{(e^x-1)^3}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

L' Hospital's Rule

[tex]\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}= \lim_{x\rightarrow\0} \frac{f'(x)}{g'(x)}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

Phew, I think my hold on the latex codes are solid now, thanks Status. Okay, here's what I've worked so far, and where I'm stuck at.

Just as Hosp. Rule says, I found the derivative of the numerator and denominator functions seperately by using the chain rule:

[tex]\lim_{x\rightarrow 0} \frac{e^2x(2x+1)+e^x(x+1)-4e^2x+2e^x}{(3e^x)(e^x-1)^2}[/tex]

I noticed that the function was still indeterminate due to the denominator going to 0, so I found the derivatives of the numerator and denominator again;

But my result showed that the denominator went to 0 again because its dervivative is:

[tex] 3e^x(e^x-1)(3e^x-1)[/tex]

I must be doing something wrong.
