I have been asked to find if the following sequence is increasing or decreasing:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

an = ne^-n

So I first multiplied thru by e^n to get: n/e^n

Then, I did n+1, so (n+1)*e^-(n+1). I moved the negative exponent to the bottom to get

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

I guess my first question is did I start off correctly.
