Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When we directly substitute 0 for x, we get 0/0. This means we can use l'Hôpital's rule, which says to find the derivative of the top and of the bottom, and then try direct substitution. The derivative of the bottom is simply 1. Try to find the derivative of the top piece on your own and let me know if you need more assistance with it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hello @Silja \(\Huge \mathcal{\text{Welcome To OpenStudy}\ddot\smile} \) first you can use the log property that \(\ln a\ln b = \ln (a/b)\) have you done that already ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thats very Bad because I write from the mobile phone. And I can't upload a picture here or?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2rather one simpler way is to separate the 2 limits , \(\dfrac{\ln (1+bx)}{x}\dfrac{\ln (1bx)}{x}\) and treat them individually is this what you have done ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No I had another way but I get always the solution 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2let me walk you through then do you know the standard limit \(\lim \limits_{x \rightarrow 0}\dfrac{\ln (1+x)}{x}=...?\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we will use this : \(\lim \limits_{x \rightarrow 0}\dfrac{\ln (1+x)}{x}=1\) so to bring your function in the form of (1+variable) / variable form i will multiply and divide by 'b' in the first term (notice that the variable is bx and not just 'x')\ \(b\dfrac{\ln(1+bx)}{bx}\) got this step ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2similarly for the 2nd term, now the variable is bx (notice!) \(\large (b)\dfrac{\ln(1+(bx))}{(bx)}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, now we distribute the limits, b (and b) can be take out of limit as they are constants \(\large b\lim \limits_{bx \rightarrow 0}\dfrac{\ln (1+bx)}{bx}(b)\lim \limits_{bx \rightarrow 0}\dfrac{\ln (1+(bx))}{(bx)}\) so now using our standard formula, both the limit will equal \(\large 1.\) and we get, \(\large b(1)(b)(1)=b+b=2b\) ask if you have doubts in any step :)
