it's rather a bypass question, not a direct question about 'e'.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the last term in the binomial expansion of (1+1/n)^n is according to my text:

(1/n!)(1-1/n)(1-2/n)....(1-(n-1)/n)

while it should be (1/n!)(n(n-1)...1)/n^n

okay, these two terms are almost identical, the first equals

(with disregarding of 1/n!):

((n-1)(n-2)...1)/n^n

and second one is the first multiplied by n, then what is the problem.

i assume it's with me ( just kidding).
