(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

lim (1-10x)^(1/x)

x->0

evaluate the limit

2. Relevant equations

L'hostpital's rule

3. The attempt at a solution

take derivative:

lim (-10+100x)/x

x->0

can't divide by zero so take the derivative again but x goes away:

lim 100

x->0

is 100 the limit? is there a limit? now that i'm looking at it again, i dont think i have the derivative right...
