$$\lim_{x\to0}\frac{x3^x}{3^x-1}=\frac{1}{\ln3}$$
$$A=\lim_{x\to0}\frac{x3^x}{3^x-1}$$ For $\lim_{x\to0}(x3^x)=0\times3^0=0$ and $\lim_{x\to0}(3^x-1)=3^0-1=1-1=0,$ this is an indeterminate form of $\frac{0}{0}$. Applying L'Hospital's Rule, we have $$A=\lim_{x\to0}\frac{(x3^x)'}{(3^x-1)'}$$ $$A=\lim_{x\to0}\frac{1\times3^x+x(3^x\ln3)}{3^x\ln3-0}$$ $$A=\lim_{x\to0}\frac{3^x+x3^x\ln3}{3^x\ln3}$$ $$A=\lim_{x\to0}\frac{3^x(1+x\ln3)}{3^x\ln3}$$ $$A=\lim_{x\to0}\frac{1+x\ln3}{\ln3}$$ Now we replace $x$ with $0$. $$A=\frac{1+0\times\ln3}{\ln3}$$ $$A=\frac{1}{\ln3}$$
