    Note that ln(a/b) != ln a/ln b

    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:

    [tex]e = \lim_{n\to\infty} \left( 1 + \frac{1}{n} \right)^n[/tex]

    by definition. Also remember the laws for manipulating limits.
