    it is given to prove that x/(1+x) < ln(1+x) < x in the interval [1,1+t] t>0

    why do you need to prove ... ln(2) > 1/2 ?

    By considering ln x in [1; 1 + t] (t > 0), ln x in [1; 1 + t] (t > 0), minimum bound : ln(x) = 1 => x = e

    x/(1+x) < ln(1+x) < x ... perhaps we can use the same argument as we used above.

    \[ (x+1)^2 > 1+x > 1 \text{ for all x > 0} \\ {1 \over (1+x)^2} < {1 \over 1 +x} < 1 \text{ for all x > 0} \\ \int_0^x {1 \over (1+x)^2} \;dx < \int_0^x {1 \over 1 +x}\;dx < \int_0^x1 \; dx \\ {x \over 1+x} < \ln(1+x) < x \]

    \[ \ln (x) \text{ in } [1, 1+t], t>0 \] perhaps this would mean show that \( \ln(1)<{t \over 1 +t} < \ln(1+t)\)
