# Use Taylor Series To Evaluate

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data[/b]
use taylor series to evaluate lim x -> 0 of $\frac{ln(x)}{(x-1)}$

2. Relevant equations

I know that -ln (1-x) taylor polynomial
and that of ln (1+x)

3. The attempt at a solution

Using the basics that I know I would assume I would just make ln (1+x) = ln (x) by making x = x-1

so ln (1+(x-1)) = ln x

But i dont know if that is correct

Why would you need Taylor series for $\lim_{x\to 0}$? I guess maybe you really mean $x\to 1$, which is more interesting? If so, do what you suggest by writing the series for $\ln(1+(x-1)$ and divide by $x-1$.
