I know this limit should be zero but i'm not sure why.
\[\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \frac{ 917^(n+100) }{ 955^n }\]

Just to clarify that is 917^(n+100) on the top

\[\frac{917^{n+100}}{955^{n}\] \[n> \infty\] \[{\frac{917}{955}}^n \times 917^100\] \[n\to \infty\] so \[{\frac{917}{955} }^n>0\] \[0\times 917^100=0\]

oops \[0\times 917^{100}=0\]

Think i've got it, how i worked it out was like this. Could be completely wrong but oh well. \[\frac{ n(\frac{ 917^{n+100} }{ n }) }{ 955 }\] \[\frac{ 0 }{ 955 }= 0\] ?

ahhh, just imagine the bottom line as n(955)

But this part \[\frac{917^{n+100}}{n}\ne 0\] It's of the form \[\frac{\infty}{\infty}\]
