So, i just had my calc test, and I'm not asking for homework help. but there was one question that i just couldn't get. it went something like this:

find the limit as x--> infinite of (1/(1+(1/x))^infinite. anybody know how to solve it? i ended up with my final answer as e, but I'm not sure if that's right.

I don't know my calculus so I am gonna just say it is one. One over x is just zero because 1 over infinity and therefore you get 1 over 1....right? I dunno, hope it helps and someone with better calc. skills will come along soon enough to help you out and give you a sure answer.

the method i said earlier is wrong because it doesnt take into account that the denomenator must be larger than one, since it is (1. something) that is being multiplied over and over, thus increasing the value each time, giving e.

Well, we've got some really talented people on here. Considering the other stuff that gets asked on this board (i.e. anything by doctorcynical) I don't see it being inappropriate to ask a calculus question.

actually, i posted after the test, about a specific problem. did i ask for someone to explain all of calc 2 to me? no. i see no problem with asking a question or two that could majorly help someone, especially when you have a calc prof. like mine, who doesn't teach and only complains about his arm,.
