    As Mini was saying, it cannot be an indeterminate form.

    0/0 is the easiest one to see, then u can just do it on top and bottom, but dont confuse it with the quotient rule! thatll suck!

    er Scratch what I said last: \lim_{x\to c}{f(x)} = \lim_{x\to c}g(x) = 0 or \lim_{x\to c}{f(x)} = \pm\lim_{x\to c}{g(x)} = \pm\infty. And suppose that \lim_{x\to c}{\frac{f'(x)}{g'(x)}} = L. Then \lim_{x\to c}{\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}}=L.

    Does Limit of (x-4)/(x+4)^2 with x->-4 fit the criteria for L'Hopital?

    Some of the situations that call for Lhopital\[\infty/ \infty\]\[\infty-\infty\]\[1^{\infty}\]\[\infty ^{0}\]\[0^{\infty}\]\[0\infty\]
