First Order Consecutive Reactions with Equal Rate Constants

What happens when k1 = k2 in equation,

Mathematically, it is clear that we get an undefined answer, so we need to develop another way to evaluate the expression in the limit when k1 approaches k2 . (Hint: Consider I‘Hôpital’s rule.)

This is the problem 2.19 of the book “Chemical Kinetics and Reaction Dynamics, written by Paul L. Houston”.
