Homework Help: Help with Sequence

  1. Dec 10, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Determine whether the following sequence converges or diverges. If converges, find the limit:

    a = [1+(2/n)]^n


    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I thought the limit would be one as inside the brackets at infinity it would be 1^n which would equal 1

    *the answer given at the back of the book is e^2
