# Math Help - n --> infinity, limit root(n-1) - root(n) = zero ?

1. ## n --> infinity, limit root(n-1) - root(n) = zero ?

the result of the above mentioned limit is infinity minus infinity = zero, or do you calculate it differently?

2. ## Re: n --> infinity, limit root(n-1) - root(n) = zero ?

$\lim_{n \to \infty }\sqrt{n}-\sqrt{n-1}=\lim_{n \to \infty }(\sqrt{n}-\sqrt{n-1})\cdot \frac{\sqrt{n}+\sqrt{n-1}}{\sqrt{n}+\sqrt{n-1}}=\lim_{n \to \infty }\frac{1}{\sqrt{n}+\sqrt{n-1}}=0$
