We consider the sequence given by

and want to know whether it converges and if so, what the limit is. We can not use fact immediately, as neither the numerator nor the denominator converges. However, we can use the following trick. We write

In this form, the numerator and the denominator converges, and the limits are and respectively. Therefore, the sequence converges to .
