Prove that \(x\) is both rational and an integer.\[\lim_{n\to\infty}\left(\ln n\frac{n}{\pi\left(n\right)}\right)=x\]The function \(\pi(n)\) counts the number of primes less than or equal to \(n\).
I've seen this equation somewhere before, but I can't remember where.
IIRC, \(x\) evaluates to \(1\). Mysterious!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's only necessary that someone links to a proof. I know I've seen this before, somewhere.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's right. This is Legendre's constant. That's where I saw it before! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legendre%27s_constant
