## L'Hôpital's Pronunciation:

`We pronounce this as Lo-pital`

## L'Hopital's Rule Definition:

`The limit of a quotient`

equals

limit of derivative of quotients.

We use L'Hôpital's Rule for:

indeterminate limits of quotients

0/0, or ∞/∞

## L'Hopital's Rule Notation:

lim

_{x → c} ƒ(x)/g(x) = lim

_{x → c} ƒ'(x)/g'(x)

## L'Hopital's Rule Example:

## Taking the limit as x goes to 3:

Since the limit is indeterminate

we can use L'Hôpital's Rule

## Taking the limit as x goes to 3:

lim_{x → 3} ƒ'(x)/g'(x) = **108**
