Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nevermind XD you're making the error of plugging zero directly in for x. You need the right hand limit. That's going to be negative infinity (ln x as x approaches zero becomes negatively large and dividing that by an infinitely small number makes that number even larger and more negative)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if i plug in a small number to the right of X, should ln(x) equal a small number.. and dividing by a small number would give me a larger number/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ln(x) should equal a large number that is also negative (you can check this by plugging in ln (.0000001) into your calculator
