Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can rewrite the series as:\[\frac{\frac{1}{n}}{1+\frac{1}{n}}+\frac{\frac{1}{n}}{1+\frac{2}{n}}+\frac{\frac{1}{n}}{1+\frac{3}{n}}+\cdots+\frac{\frac{1}{n}}{1+\frac{n}{n}}\]\[=\frac{1}{1+\frac{1}{n}}\cdot \frac{1}{n}+\frac{1}{1+\frac{2}{n}}\cdot \frac{1}{n}+\cdots +\frac{1}{1+\frac{n}{n}}\cdot \frac{1}{n}\]Then it should be clear that this series is actually a Riemann sum. Its getting the areas under the function:\[f(x)=\frac{1}{1+x}\] over the interval [0,1] by splitting the interval into n equal pieces. So the limit as n goes to infinity is:\[\int\limits_{0}^1\frac{1}{1+x}dx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You want to look at it as:\[x_n=\sum_{k=1}^{n}\frac{1}{n+k}=\sum_{k=1}^{n}\frac{\frac{1}{n}}{1+\frac{k}{n}}=\sum_{k=1}^{n}\frac{1}{1+\frac{k}{n}}\cdot\frac{1}{n}\]Then let:\[f(x)=\frac{1}{1+x}\]Using this, we can change the sum to:\[\sum_{k=1}^{n}f\left(\frac{k}{n}\right)\cdot\left(\frac{k}{n}\frac{k1}{n}\right)\].This is a Riemann sum of f(x) over the interval [0,1]. If you split the interval into n equal pieces, each piece is 1/n long. so thats the width of a rectangle. The height is the value of the functions at the point x = k/n.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1im not sure if there is another way to get the actual limit. This might be the only way to get it by hand.
