# l'Hôpital's rule with continuous function

#### romsek

Math Team
A function continuous at a point need not be differentiable there. Consider $f(x) = |x|,~ @ x=0$

The limits of the continuous function at that point from both directions must agree however.

From the left it's pretty clear $f(0) = k$

Your job is to find $\lim \limits_{x \to 0+} \dfrac{e^{2x}-\cos(3x)}{2x^2+4x}$ which can be found using L'Hopital's rule.

I leave this to you.

Set $k$ to that limit from the right and Bob's yer uncle.
