    [SOLVED] Evalute the limit

    as the limit of t approaches (pie/2)^{+} of
    e^{tan(t)}
    it looks like zero but the back of the book has positive infinity as the answer

    The tangent goes to \infty as t approaches \frac{\pi}{2} and the exponential goes to \infty as t approaches \frac{\pi}{2}

    Graph of tan(x)



    Graph of e^x



    Are you sure this is a right-handed limit?

    If this were a right handed limit it would in fact be 0, if it were a left handed limit it would be \infty
