(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

using the following definition: ln x = [tex]\int dx/x[/tex], give best possible upper and lower estimates of ln n, n a positive integer.

then, use this result to show that the limit of the function as n approaches infinity is infinity.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Unfortunately I have no idea what to attempt -- I don't know how to find estimates, and I'm not really sure what that means -- this is for a history of math class so I have no textbook context to look though either. Any explanations/tips would be very helpful, thanks!
