    Limit as x approaches infinity

    in order to do this problem I have I must solve the limit of
    P(t)=6000-5500e^(-0.159t) as t approaches infinity. I know that the limit is 6000 I just don't know how to show the work to prove this. Please Help!

    e^{-0.195t}=\frac{1}{e^{0.195t}}

    As t approaches infinity, so does e^{0.195t}

    hence that part approaches zero.
