I need to show that this pattern is true.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]\sqrt{n+1} \approx \frac{n}{2} + 1 \ \ when \ n << 1[/itex]

the smaller 'n' is, the more this is true.

(i.e. for example, [itex]\sqrt{1.0000000000001234} \approx \frac{.0000000000001234}{2} + 1[/itex] )

Can anyone help?

(this isnota homework assignment. I need it for work)

Thanks.
