Can anyone tell me if there is a function where the immediate indeterminate form is of [0^0] but after L'Hopital's rule, it reduces to a number. However, it can't reduce to the value of 1. Any other value will work. Thanks.

$$\lim_{x \to 0} x^{k \over \log x} = \mathrm e^k$$

v8archie, maybe you meant to write $\displaystyle\lim_{x\to0}x^{\frac{\log k}{\log x}}=k$

Not quite, but thanks for pointing out the error.

If k is a constant then ln(k) and exp(k) are also constants so there is no point having a fancy expression of the constant.

the tricky part is this if you have some sort of f(x)^g(x) that goes to 0^0 or 1^0 or infinity^infinity in the most cases you can do e^g(x)lim f(X) and then do your derivite in some cases after this step you going to have another form of indeterminant like 0 over 0 or infinity over infinity and then you can apply hopital rule best wishes
