The request of the problem is vague, hence if you need to solve the limit `lim_(x->oo) (ln x)*(-x), ` hence, you need to substitute `oo` for x in equation such that:
`lim_(x->oo) (ln x)*(-x) = (ln oo)*(-oo) = oo*(-oo)`
`lim_(x->oo) (ln x)*(-x) = -oo`
If you need to solve the limit `lim_(x->oo) (ln (x*(-x)), ` hence, you need to use logarithmic identity such that:
`ln(a*b) = ln a + ln b`
Reasoning by analogy yields:
`lim_(x->oo) (ln (x*(-x)) = lim_(x->oo) (ln x + ln(-x))`
Notice that the logarithm `ln(-x)` is invalid for x>0, hence, the limit cannot be evaluated.
Hence, evaluating the limit `lim_(x->oo) (ln x)*(-x)` yields `lim_(x->oo) (ln x)*(-x) = -oo.`
