TopNewestThis 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 \( k \). – Ahaan Rungta · 3 years, 7 months ago

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.Log in to reply

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

what is nat in ln(nat log)?Log in to reply

– Piyal De · 3 years, 7 months ago

'nat' is natural log(base e), Budha.Log in to reply

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 – Jord W · 3 years, 7 months ago

Numerically, I have found the answer to be \(1\) for all values of \(k\).Log in to reply
