L'Hospital's Rule

If the following are true:

limits of f(x) and g(x) are equal and are zero or infinity:
\lim_{x\to a}{f(x)}=\lim_{x\to a}{g(x)}=0 or
\lim_{x\to a}{f(x)}=\lim_{x\to a}{g(x)}=\infty

functions g(x) and f(x) have derivatives near point a

derivative of g(x) is not zero at point a: g'(x)!= 0;

and there exists limit of derivatives: \lim_{x\to a}{\frac{f'(x)}{g'(x)}}

then there exists limit of f(x) and g(x): \lim_{x\to a}{\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}}, and it is equal to limit of derivatives : \lim_{x\to a}{\frac{f'(x)}{g'(x)}}

For function you can use the following syntax:

+ addition
- subtraction
* multiplication
/ division
^ power

sqrt - square root
rootp - n-th root, f.e. root3(x) is a cubic root
lb - logarithm with base 2
lg - logarithm with base 10
ln - natural logarithm with base 8
logp - logarithm base p, f.e. log7(x)
sin - sine
cos - cosine
tg - tangent
ctg - cotangent
sec - secant
cosec - cosecant
arcsin - arcsine
arccos - arccosine
arctg - arctangent
arcctg - arccotangent
arcsec - arcsecant
arccosec - arccosecant
versin - versine
vercos - vercosine
haversin - haversine
exsec - exsecant
excsc - excosecant
sh - hyperbolic sine
ch - hyperbolic sine
th - hyperbolic tangent
cth - hyperbolic cotangent
sech - hyperbolic secant
csch - hyperbolic cosecant
abs - absolute value (module)
sgn - signum (sign)
