Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=Limit%5B%281+%2B+x%29%5E%281%2Fx%29+%281%2F%28x+%281+%2B+x%29%29++Log%5B1+%2B+x%5D%2Fx%5E2%29%2C+x+%3E+0%5D after using L'hopital you get this expression. The first term tends to e .. if you again apply L'hopital on the second term, you will get 1/2
