Limit Problem (L'hospitals rule ) (difference)

  1. Dec 8, 2005 #1
    Help please =P I've been doing all the l'hospitals rule problems fine and i did the limit of 1/x-cscx fine... same for otehers but i cant get this one??

    lim x->infinity (x-ln[x])

    I tried making x = 1/x^-1 and then combining them but that made it so confusing, is that the right approach?? :bugeye:

    Any advice appreciated. Thank you!

    Your approach works. Just make sure you separately differentiate the fraction in the numerator from the fraction in the denominator.
