Hi, Why does the limit of ((n+1)/n)^n when n -> infinity gives "e"? I calculated some values, but I thought that n+1 gave n, so it gave (n/n)^n = 1. Thanks

Thanks Does the limit $\displaystyle \lim_{h \to \infty} \left(1 + \frac{1}{h}\right)^h$ look familiar? Notice that $\displaystyle \frac{n + 1}{n} = 1 + \frac{1}{n}$.
Thanks I understand now.
