    I know about that .. the solution will be obtained easily by that method ..

    but.. could you solve the question without stirling's approximation ?

    I'm afraid Stirling's approximation provides the simplest approach.Keep in mind that u've to compute the limit of a sequence and u cannot make the transition to a function,due to a factorial in the denominator.Of course,that factorial can be put under the form
    [tex] n!=\Gamma(n+1) [/tex]
    ,but that won't do you any good,since it still involves discrete values for "n".
