is it \( \large \frac{(1+7/x)^x}{12}\) or \( \large (1+7/x)^{x/12} \)

y=lim (1+7/x)^x/12 ln(y)=lim x/12 ln(1+7/x) \[\frac{ \ln(1+\frac{ 7 }{x} }{\frac{12 }x }\]

mathmate it's the second

\[\lim_{x \rightarrow ∞} \frac{ (1+7)^x }{ 12 }\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
then i took d/dx to both the numerator and the denominator
anonymous
  • anonymous
the problem is \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty} (1+\frac{ 7 }{ 12})^\frac{ x }{12 }\]

In order to use L'hopitals rule, you must have a fraction with a function on the numerator and denominator

do you know a general formula \[\lim_{y \rightarrow 0} (1+y)^{\frac{ 1}{y}}=...?\]
hartnn
  • hartnn
if you know ^ that, then you can put 7/x = y in your limit question first, to bring in that form.
hartnn
  • hartnn
if you use the formula, you get the correct answer in just few steps by adjusting the exponent. \[\lim_{y \rightarrow 0} (1+y)^{\frac{ 1}{y}}=e\]
