Observe the inequalities,

Thus,

Thus, multiply by ,

Now,

Thus, by the squeeze theorem,

okay, i see that we used the squeeze theorem, however,

in the second part of 'Observe the inequalities' where it = n + ln2

why did we raise 1 to e^n?

also, we used 1/n for a bound in the squeeze theorem, is this because you recognized it as a series? if so, which one.

thanks for all the help! - January 30th 2007, 07:48 PMThePerfectHacker

okay, i can see as both sides of the squeeze theorem converge to 1.

then, also the middle equation converges to 1.

thanks for your help.
