    can be solved by taking log on both sides...

    and also without LH, do you know what lim x->0 [a^x-1 /x] =... ?

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\frac{ 1^x + 2^x + 3 ^x ........n^x }{ n })^{\frac{ 1 }{ x }}\\=\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\frac{ 1^x + 2^x + 3 ^x ........n^x +n-n}{ n })^{\frac{ 1 }{ x }} \\ \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\frac{ 1^x + 2^x + 3 ^x ........n^x+n }{ n }-1)^{\frac{ 1 }{ x }} \\\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\frac{ 1^x-1 + 2^x -1+ 3 ^x-1 ........n^x-1 }{ n }-1)^{\frac{ 1 }{ x }}\] got the hint ?

    and you need to take log on both sides first....to get 'x' in the denominator.

    using the standard formula for lim x->0 (1+x)^(1/x) and adjusting the exponents .

    the other would be use the usual unusual trick!! x = e^ln(x)

    x = e^ln(x) is the usual trick for types of f(x)^g(x) like ... n->0 (n!)^(1/n^n)

    i can't think of another way at all you are going to have to either take the log or rewrite as an exponential (which is really the same thing) because you have a variable in the exponent
