Find the following limit: lim x →∞ 1 + 2 5 x 7 x The following uses the natural log function, L’Hopital’s Rule, and no ”tricks”. Let y = lim x →∞ 1 + 2 5 x 7 x Now use the properties of the natural log function to write the exponential expression as a product. Remember, the natural log function is continuous on (0 , ) . ln y = ln lim x →∞ 1 + 2 5 x 7 x = lim x →∞ ln 1 + 2 5 x 7 x = lim x →∞ 7 x ln 1 + 2 5 x We can write our product as a quotient by dividing by 1 7 x instead of multiplying by 7 x . ln y = lim x →∞ 7 x ln 1 + 2 5 x = lim x →∞ ln 1 + 2 5 x 1 7 x Now we have a quotient, so we can see if we can use L’Hopital’s Rule. This is a ” 0 0 ” form (remember, ln(1) = 0) so we can use L’Hopital’s Rule.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
