Homework Help: Limits -

    Limits - Please Help!

    I have been set 4 questions, i basically have no idea if the ones i have tried are correct and have no idea how to even start the other 2. Any help would be much appreciated. I have scanned them in (easier than typing i think).

    I am not asking for the answers just some help to put me on the right path.

    b)use the rationalization of the numerator.
    [tex] n \left( { \sqrt{1+n^{2}}-n } \right) = \frac{n \left( { 1+n^{2}-n^{2} } \right)}{\sqrt{1+n^{2}}+n} [/tex]
    c)watch the given hint carefully!
    [tex] \left( { \frac{3}{2} } \right)^{2n} < \left( { \frac{2n+1}{n+1} } \right)^{2n} [/tex]
    you'd better prove the given hint by the induction...

    I think the other answers are right in the way you solved.
