L'hospital's rule

    How to prove it? I've watched a tv program before and I vaguely remember the proof consists of 4 parts, which includes the mean value theorem, Cauchy's mean value theorem and the other 2 theorems. I haven't learnt mean value theorem at that time and I didn't understand it, perhaps I can now.

    The first proof uses Taylor expansions. The second uses Cauchy's MVT.
