Test it out.

Are we getting anywhere? If we've done nothing else, it is hoped that you might be discouraged from determining the limit to be unuty, (1). It's more than 1+x, whatever it is.

We could also try the Binomial Theorem on it. Is that in your bag of tricks?

OR, you could find the limit of the logarithm and see where that leads.

Your task is to determine why on earth I would write it in that last form.
