If h(x)~g(x), is h(x+1)~g(x)?

And, if h(x)~g(x), is h(x)h(x+1)~g(x)g(x+1)?

Thanks in advance for any help...

Think about [itex]e^{(x+1)}=e \cdot e^x[/itex]; look at the definitions.

I'm not sure that implication holds in general... I can imagine failure can occur if the functions grow sufficiently fast, or if they can do other odd things, like zig-zag back and forth.If h(x)~g(x), is h(x+1)~g(x)?

What about with the prime counting function? Is pi(x+1)~x/lnx?I'm not sure that implication holds in general... I can imagine failure can occur if the functions grow sufficiently fast, or if they can do other odd things, like zig-zag back and forth.

Ah, ok. Because if either one of those is true then it implies that pi(x+1)~x/lnx.
