hello all

I was workin on a problem and during my proof I came to this problem does anybody know what happens with this limit

hello all

would this be correct?

[tex]\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \frac{\log {(n+1)}}{\log {n}}[/tex]
[tex]=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \frac{\log {n(1+\frac{1}{n})}}{\log {n}}[/tex]
[tex]=\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \frac{\log{n}+\log {n(1+\frac{1}{n})}}{\log {n}}[/tex]
[tex]=1+\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} \frac{\log {(1+\frac{1}{n})}}{\log {n}}=1[/tex]
 
yes that looks right except that you have a typo in the 3rd equation.
