Change is bad, unless it leads to a lower energy state then change me all you want!

Become the lowest energy state... sadly, entropy doesn't like it sometimes...

Just multiply the limit by 0/0 ( = 1)

*in the format of the “cover yourself in oil” meme*

0/0 can’t be done because dividing by 0 is bad

- Call 0 to be a limit as x->infinity of 1/x
- (1/infinity)/(1/infinity) rearranges to infinity/infinity
- Call infinity to be limit as x->infinity of x
- x/x=1
- Spread chaos across the land as you solve every quandary known to man by beating it to death with Lhospital’s rule
- Start a war among the entire human population by proving the existence of god with Lhospital’s rule

lim x->inf x = lim x->inf x/1 = lim x->inf (dx/dx)/(d1/dx) = lim x->inf 1/0 = lim x->inf inf = infinity

-inf/-inf = inf/inf, but I'm assuming you mean -inf/inf.

I always do some factoring out for limits to infinity. Have some polynomials in the numerator and denominator? Factor out the highest power.

3/5 ? Lets go L'Oreal,\ look NOW it's 0/0,\ so it must've been 1 all along

Once I was giving an exercise session on limits. I had to make an exam for the students so I gave what I thought was a very easy question, I asked the limit as x->1 of (x+2)/(x+3). Not a single person got it right, all of them got 1 using l'hôpital's rule :).

Oh, think your so smart with lhopitals rule. Calculate

lim (x->0) of log(x)*exp(-x^2)/exp(-(x+sin(x))^4)

You might need to apply the rule several times.
