Homework Help: Find the limit of ln(n)/ln(n+1) as n--> infinity

  1. Oct 26, 2008 #1
    can someone help me find the lim as n approaches infinity of

    ln(n)/ln(n+1)

    I used L'HOP so it became (1/n)/(1/n+1) -- as this approaches infinity, it's 0/0, and this confuses me. What am I doing wrong?

    Re: L'hop

    What happens if you simplify the complex fraction

    [tex]
    \frac{\dfrac 1 n}{\dfrac 1 {n+1}}
    [/tex]

    before you evaluate the limit?
