Is there someone who can explain why this is true, or point me to an online resource that provides a proof of it?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

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

[/tex]

I know that in some ways, this is how the exponential function is defined. But any resources you can provide that explain it in more detail would be appreciated. Thanks!
