Homework Help: No idea how to compute this limit

  1. Sep 15, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    [tex] \lim_{x→-∞}xe^{x} [/tex]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    L'Hopital's rule maybe? I solved a lot of problems today, just no idea how to get past this one. Any hints?

    Write the limit as
    [tex]\lim_{x→-∞} \frac{x}{e^{-x}}[/tex]
    Apply L'Hopital's rule.
