- Application (or repeated application) of the rule often converts an indeterminate form to a simpler expression that can be evaluated by substitution.
- L'Hospital's rule states that for functions
*f*and*g*which are differentiable on an open interval*I*except possibly at a point*c*contained in*I*, if...
