1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Hi. I'm having problems with the limit of x --> 1 of ( x / ln(x) ). 2. Relevant equations L'Hopital's Rule Algebraic Manipulation 3. The attempt at a solution I understand that the the limit will give me a semi-indeterminate form (that is, it's answer is 1 / 0). What I don't understand is how I can manipulate ln (x) so it's not in the denominator. I tried thinking of ways to use e^x.... but realized that multiplying by e^x does nothing. I'm presuming that we can raise both the numerator and the denominator by e^x but was not sure if it was legitimate. Thanks in advance.
