    You cannot apply L'Hospital on this function (yet), you'd need to rewrite it so that you get something of the form 0/0 or ∞/∞.

    To apply L'Hospital's Rule, put the expression in theform f(x)/g(x). If the form is indeterminate, then you can apply the Rule.

    Just to avoid confusion: it has to be 0/0 or ∞/∞ as I said, since there are more indeterminate forms possible. Many can be reduced to one of the two 'allowed' ones to use the rule though.
