Kudos for your detailed and rather insightful answer Arturo! I guess you are right, because if the problem is taken literally as described, then it seems to be rather oversimplified. Finding the limit by applying the L'Hôpital-Bernoulli Rule would be more relevant in this case, as you have described.
My best,

Thank you, Alexander.
Unfortunately, there are many math problems on this site that lack proper grouping of expressions, questions with incomplete information, unsolvable problems, ambiguous wording, contradictory information, etc.  It is often challenging to figure out what the student really meant to ask.  I am sure you will see more of this as time goes by.
