Hello,

I've been given a long limit problem to solve and i got stuck on this part in the question. Could someone please give me hints or suggestions on where to go next?

Given that $$\frac{e^{x}}{x^{n}}$$ > e$$^{x - n\sqrt{x}}$$

Find the $$lim_{x\rightarrow+\infty}$$ $$\frac{e^{x}}{x^{n}}$$

Well i know that $$lim_{x\rightarrow\infty}$$ e$$^{x}$$ = $$\infty$$

but i think the question would like us to use the inequality above.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

I don't see how the inequality helps. Do you know about power series? If so, then can you write down a power series for the function $e^x/x^n$, and take its limit?

umm... i haven't learnt power series... Is there another approach i could take??
i tried l'hospitals rule but my answer didn't help much in this...

Hi caelestis!

Hint: prove that lim (x - n√x) = ∞.
