The top one that you mentioned. It is NOT the fraction one.
they are both the same thing the 2nd is easier to work with
The key is to know that for is as Now, in your limit put so the limit equals so for large is and the squeeze theorem finishes the problem.
is simply a bell-shaped curve with a maximum of 1 at x=0. As x approaches + or -infinity, f(x) rapidly goes to zero.
