    Agree with @Callisto but let's see how this plays out :)

    \[\LARGE e^{ (\frac{e^x+e^{-x}-2-x^2}{x^2})\frac{1}{x^2}}\] this should be it,I just need to find the limit of this thing,hmm..

    the power gives 1/12 hence e^(1/12) is the answer.

    Isn't this pretty straightforward as far as L'Hôpital stuff is concerned?

    \[\large { (\frac{1+x+\frac{x^2}{2}+\frac{x^3}{6}+\frac{x^4}{24}+1-x+\frac{x^2}{2}-\frac{x^3}{6}+\frac{x^4}{24}+-2-x^2}{x^2})\frac{1}{x^2}}\] =112

    I didn't say simple, I said straightforward :D \[\Large 1^\infty\] So... suppose... \[\Large L = \lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\left(\frac{e^x +e^{-x}-2}{x^2}\right)^{\frac1{x^2}}\]

    Then... \[\Large \ln(L) = \ln \lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\left(\frac{e^x +e^{-x}-2}{x^2}\right)^{\frac1{x^2}}\] Since Logarithms are continuous, they may enter the limit... \[\Large \ln(L) = \lim_{x\rightarrow 0} \ \ln\left(\frac{e^x +e^{-x}-2}{x^2}\right)^{\frac1{x^2}}\] \[\Large \ln(L) = \lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac1{x^2}\cdot \ln\left(\frac{e^x +e^{-x}-2}{x^2}\right)\]

    \[\Large \lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac1{x^2}\cdot \ln\left(\frac{e^x +e^{-x}-2}{x^2}\right) =\lim_{x\rightarrow 0} \frac{\ln\left(\frac{e^x +e^{-x}-2}{x^2}\right) }{x^2}\] And now we have an indeterminate form \(\large\frac00\)

    Yup :) Differentiating the numerator and denominator... (bloody hell, this'll be a mouthful :D ) \[\Large \lim_{x\rightarrow 0} \frac{\ln\left(\frac{e^x +e^{-x}-2}{x^2}\right) }{x^2}=\lim_{x\rightarrow0}\frac{\left(\frac{x^2}{e^x+e^{-x}-2}\right)\left(\frac{x^2(e^x-e^{-x})-2x(e^x+e^{-x}-2)}{x^4}\right)}{2x}\]

    That is true... unfortunately, I'm not well-versed with series... I don't like series, series don't like me :D
