Homework Help: L'Hospitals Rule

  1. Oct 16, 2008 #1
    lim (x approaches 9pi/4) (tanx)^tan10x

    use L'Hospital's Rule to find the exact value

    my attempt:
    y = lim (tanx)^tan10x
    lny= lim ln(tanx)^tan10x
    = tan10x lim ln(tanx)

    I really don't know where to go from there

    In your last line, you take tan10x out of the limit without evaluating it. Put it back in and turn it into cot(10x) to put it on the bottom, then apply L'Hospital's. Make sure to apply exp at the end to get the final answer.
