Remember that one tricky Limits section that required intense algebraic manipulation to avoid getting 0/0 or infinity/infinity limits? We will now revisit it again, but with the knowledge of derivatives. In this section, we will learn how derivatives enable us to efficiently evaluate the limits of a function using the "L'Hospital's rule".

Note *l'Hôpital's Rule applies to **2 types** of indeterminate forms:

**type $\frac{0}{0}$** (that is, $\lim$_{x →$c$} $f(x)=0$ and $\lim$_{x →$c$}$g(x)=0$)

or

**type $\frac{\infty}{\infty}$** (that is, $\lim$_{x →$c$} $f(x)=\pm \infty$ and $\lim$_{x →$c$}$g(x)=\pm \infty$)

Then according to l'Hôpital's Rule: $\lim$_{x →$c$} $\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}=$ $\lim$_{x →$c$} $\frac{f'(x)}{g'(x)}$

or

Then according to l'Hôpital's Rule: $\lim$
