This actually turned out easier than I thought, thanks to Art of Problem Solving user aziiri. This was his solution: $\forall\ x\geq 0\ :\ x- \frac{x^2}{2}\leq \ln(1+x)\leq x.$ Apply to get that the limit equals $$\boxed {1}$$ for any real number $$k$$.

Yep, that's me. Note that even if we replace $$k$$ with $$-n$$ we still get $$1$$, because the n-th degree root tends towards one a lot faster that the logarithm and the identity function.

Can u provide this "Art of Problem Solving" for me ?! is it a book or what ?!

It is a website: www.artofproblemsolving.com.

You made my day , Thx !

Also you can take ln(nat log) and then evaluate it, it would come ln(L)=0 where 'L' is the limit.

what is nat in ln(nat log)?

- 4 years, 4 months ago

'nat' is natural log(base e), Budha.

0

I've never been an expert on limits but i think its 0... if n is realy large, 1/(nlogn) will be 0 pretty much, regardless of the k... then it becomes the nth root of the square root of log(1) which is the nth root of 0 which is 0.. sure theres a way better way of doing this lol

it is 1 , m sure :)

Can you tell me the ans Ahaan?

- 4 years, 4 months ago

Numerically, I have found the answer to be $$1$$ for all values of $$k$$.

- 4 years, 4 months ago

Yeah, me too.

Its 0
