the common derivation of e is pretty straightforward, Lim x->oo (1+1/x)^x, but how does one prove that the infinite sum [tex]\sum[/tex][tex]\frac{1}{j!}[/tex] as j goes from 0 to oo is equal to e?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

p.s. how does one use LaTex for the super and subscripts in summation?
