what *is* the definition of the statement "lim((2n+ 1)/(3n+7)) = 2/3"?

(2n+1)/(3n+7) = [(2n)(1+1/2n)]/[(3n)(1+7/3n)]

What happens as the n's get bigger and bigger to the terms 1/2n and 7/3n?

That's the simplest way of finding the limit but it doesn't "prove from the definition".

(2n+1)/(3n+7) = [(2n)(1+1/2n)]/[(3n)(1+7/3n)]

What happens as the n's get bigger and bigger to the terms 1/2n and 7/3n?
