Indeterminate Form

When computing the limit of a function, there are times when we get a value, which does not tell us what is going on with the function as we approach a value. This is called the indeterminate form. Some of the most common types of indeterminate form of a limit are below:

While these answers don’t tell us anything about what is happening with the function, we can use L’Hôpital’s Rule to determine the value of the limit. While L’Hopital’s Rule only works when the limit is in the format of 0/0 or / we can use mathematical properties to get the value of the limit.
