    glb and lub

    How can I find the glb and lub of:

    (n^2+17n)^1/2 -(n^2+8n)^1/2

    Thanks

    Sorry, dont know if these are standard abbreviations but i mean greatest lower bound and least upper bound

    (n^2+17n)^1/2 -(n^2+8n)^1/2 obtains its global minimum at n=-17

    to find the lub, find the limit as n goes to infinity.
