You're going about it completely the wrong way. Try moving the limit around in the original expression.

I apologize but what do you mean and how? Can you show some steps it's been a while and due date is coming up soon and I still haven't figured it out!

Remember that:

$$e = \lim_{n\to\infty} \left( 1 + \frac{1}{n} \right)^n$$

by definition. Also remember the laws for manipulating limits.
