    take the log take the limit exponentiate

    I am allowed to use L'Hospital's rule. I am not sure how I would use it though...

    So I get it's (infinity/infinity)^(infinity) but I am not sure how to go from there...

    \[(3x+1)\ln(\frac{5x-3}{5x+7})\] now you \(\infty\times 0\)

    rewrite as \[\frac{\ln(\frac{5x-3}{5x+7})}{\frac{1}{3x+1}}\] now you have \[\frac{0}{0}\] and now you can use l'hopital

    probably easier if you write \[\frac{\ln(5x-3)-\ln(5x+7)}{\frac{1}{3x+1}}\]

    @satellite73 : Okay so I have: \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ \frac{ 5 }{ 5x-3 }-\frac{ 5 }{ 5x+7 } }{ \frac{ -2 }{ (3x+1)^2 } }\]

    ugly retricealgebra from here on in have fun, but you will get a rational expression so limit is same as horizontal asymptote

    \[-\frac{(3x+1)^2}{3}\times \frac{50}{(5x-3)(5x+7)}\] and not need to multiply out, just look at the ratio of the leading coefficients

    i mean you have to be a bit careful but the leading coefficient of the numerator is \(9\times 50\) and the leading coefficient of the denominator is \(-3\times 25\) so you the ratio is \(-6\)

    and don't forget to exponentiate at the end
