Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I took the deribative of the top and the bottom but I just ended up at (100n^99)/(e^n) and don't know where to go from here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You could have left it. Maybe it is hard for some people to reach that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The point is, L'H rule says the limit of a ratio is the same as the limit of the ratio of their derivatives as well. So we can just see that eventually n^100 will eventually become a constant while the bottom will always be a function of n.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If it is hard for you to see the constant kainui got. You can look at a an example with a lesser power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So does the limit even exist?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ d^n }{ dx^n }(x^n)=n!\] just for fun  Yeah, it even exists and it's even zero. @jennisicle
