Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is zero. use l'hopital's rule if it is not obvious that \[e^x\] grows much faster than \[x^e\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the "lim" part of the equation? What does it mean?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah you are trying to see what number this ratio approaches as x gets large. as x goes to infinity the denominator is much bigger than the numerator so the limit is 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0imagine for a second that e=3 which it does not but e is less than 3. 10^3 = 1000 but e^10=22026 . this difference in magnitude grows as x gets larger. for example 1000^3=10^9 but e^1000 will overflow your calculator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i've never learned about limits, so do you mind explaining how you got zero?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does that mean that when x approaches infinity, the answer approaches zero?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay One of the problems is has \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 3}\] but instead of an arrow, there's the letter R in a circle. Is that a typing error by my teacher?
