1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Evaluate [tex]lim (1+a/x)^x[/tex] (that's limit as x tends to +infinity, sorry don't know how to latex that) 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Stumped. Having that [tex]x[/tex] exponent has my confused. As x tends to infinity I know what's inside the brackets will tend to one, but the exponent will make it tend to infinity. But the question has three marks to it, it can't be that simple.
