Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe like this: \[\sqrt[n]{n!}=\sqrt[n]{n(n1)(n2)\cdots1} =\sqrt[n]{n}\sqrt[n]{n1}\cdots \sqrt[n]{1}=1\] so limit is equal to 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure that \[\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\sqrt[n]{n!}=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all the roots at the right hand side: \[\sqrt[n]{n}=\sqrt[n]{n1}=\cdots=\sqrt[n]{1}=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, it's not ok. Because you multiply an infinite quantity or 1. As we know \(1^{\infty}={}?\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Very nice. What can you say about this pretty limit? \[\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\left(1+\frac1n\right)^n\]It is \(1^{\infty}\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this happens when you talk about functions. The reason of indetermination of 1^infinity is because of that. But in this case there are no functions involved. That's my point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this case there is just number one multiplyed infinitly many times. And it happens after the limit was taken

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. What about this? \[\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\sum_{k=1}^n\frac1n\]Is it 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Look at the denominator carefully please. I hopr you will try to get what I'm saying.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0another way to try this: \[\lim \sqrt[n]{\frac{n!}{n^n}} = 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't remmeber the formal proof of n!/n^n =0, but it's evident, if you try a few first terms of this sequence. There are some posts about it if you google a bit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[{\sqrt[n]{n!}\over n}=\exp\left(\frac1n\ln(n!)\ln n\right)=\exp\left({n\ln nn+O(n)n\ln n\over n}\right)\]\[=\exp(1)=\frac1e\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya I was wrong. Here is another way to solve it. As we know root test is stronger than cuotient test, so the folowing inequality holds: \[\lim \inf \frac{a_{n+1}}{a_{n}}\leq\lim \inf \sqrt[n]{a_{n}}\leq \lim \sup \sqrt[n]{a_{n}} \leq \lim \sup\frac{a_{n+1}}{a_{n}}\] let \[a_{n} = \frac{n!}{n^{n}}\] then \[\frac{a_{n+1}}{a_{n}}=\frac{1}{(1+\frac{1}{n})^{n}}=\frac{1}{e}\] this means that \[\lim \sqrt[n]{a_{n}} = \frac{1}{e}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@mahmit2012 \[\lim \frac{a_{n+1}}{a_{n}}=\lim \sqrt[n]{a_{n}}\] only if a_n is convergent, what is not implied in this question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nice. But I have one more interesting method to find it. \[\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \frac{\sqrt[n]{n!}}{n}=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\sqrt[n]{\frac{n!}{n^n}}=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\sqrt[n]{\frac1n\cdot\frac2n\cdots\frac n n}=A\]\[\ln A=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}\frac1n(\ln\frac1n+\ln\frac2n+\ldots+\ln\frac n n)=\int_0^1\ln x dx=1\]\[\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \frac{\sqrt[n]{n!}}{n}=A=e^{1}=\frac1e\]
