    \[ \Large e = \lim_{n \rightarrow \infty}\left(1+\frac{1}{n}\right)^n \]When you reparameterize: \(x=1/n\) \[\Large e = \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\left(1+x\right)^\frac{1}{x} \]

    So it's a matter of settling that outer 1/x

    I haven't learned 'reparameterize' yet, so I would assume I wouldn't have to use that... Supposed to use L'Hospital's rule

    Okay, then you need to have an indeterminate form of \(\infty /\infty\) or \(0/0\)

    @mahmit2012 I am supposed to use L'Hospital's rule.

    I can't read that bottom line.

    Okay, let's start with bringing in the \(1/x\) to the numerator and denominator and figuring out if that is an indeterminate form.
