The natural logarithm can be expressed as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

lim n(x^(1/n)−1)

n->ifinity

Can someone please derive this for me? Ive tried using the limit definition of e^x and then applying f^-1(x) but i can only get

((n*x)-1)^1/n

any help is greatly appreciated thanks!
