Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0existence, you should note that\[\frac{n!}{n^n}\frac{n}{n}.\frac{n1}{n}.\frac{n2}{n}.....\frac{3}{n}\frac{2}{n}\frac{1}{n}\]As n goes to infinity, the lefthand numbers become asymptotically equivalent to 1, while the righthand numbers approach zero, so you end up with a situation where\[\frac{n!}{n^n} \iff 1.1.1.....0.0.0=0\]where the if and only if sign is meant to mean asymptotic behavior.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the last one, you have that\[2n^3\]is asymptotically equivalent to \[2n^3+5n^2+3\](i.e.for n large, they behave the same way) and for \[4n^3+n+7\]you have that this is asymptotically equivalent to \[4n^3\]As a consequence, for large n, you have\[\left( \frac{2n^3+5n^2+3}{4n^3+n+7} \right)^n \approx \left( \frac{2n^3}{4n^3} \right)^n=\left( \frac{1}{2} \right)^n=\frac{1}{2^n}\]so as n tends to infinity, your expression tends to 0 since 1/2^n tends to zero. I've included some information on asymptotic equivalence.
