i'm stuck trying to prove this little inequality:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(1+ 1/n)^n <= e <= (1+1/n)^n+1

is there a way to prove this without without resorting to power series for e (because we're not allowed to, and we don't know this yet) and also note that n is a natural number, (positive integer).
