Why can't the equation be simplified in the third step where it specifies that the equation is indeterminate? You could essentially have ln1/(ln1+1-1) if you substitute values in here. This then simplifies to just ln1/ln1 and then they would cancel to equal 1. Yet, the solution uses l'Hospital's rule again but it seems simplifiable here at this intermediate step. Any clarification is greatly appreciated!
