Can someone please help me in evaluating the following limit :

Lim (n-> infinity) n^{sq.root(n)}/(n+1)^{sq.root(n+1). }Thanks in advance.

It's pretty obvious, isn't it, that both numerator and denominator go to infinity- but the denominator goes to infinity faster.

If you want to be more "technical", let treat n as a continuous variable and apply L'Hopital's rule.
