# Thread: find the limit ....

1. ## find the limit ....

$\lim_{n\rightarrow \infty } \frac{ln(n+1)}{ln \ n}$

2. Since the numerator and denominator both approach infinity individually, you may use L'Hopitals rule to get:

$\lim_{n \to \infty} \frac{\ln (n+1)}{\ln n} = \lim_{n \to \infty} \frac{\frac{d}{dn} \ln (n+1)}{\frac{d}{dn} \ln n} = \lim_{n \to \infty} \frac{\frac{1}{n+1}}{\frac{1}{n}} = \lim_{n \to \infty} \frac{n}{n+1}$

3. Is...

$\frac{\ln (n+1)}{\ln n} = \frac{\ln (1+\frac{1}{n}) + \ln n}{\ln n} = 1 + \frac{\ln (1+\frac{1}{n})}{\ln n}$ (1)

... and now You have to valuate the limit for $n \rightarrow \infty$ of (1)...

Kind regards

Using L'Hupital rule, we get:
$\lim_{n\rightarrow \infty } \frac{ln(n+1)}{ln \ n} = \lim_{n\rightarrow \infty } \frac{n}{n+1} =1$
