Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I wonder how to prove that ln(x) < sqrt(x) for all x>0?

Please enlighten me on two possible way to prove this .

Proof1. Using calculus and derivatives

Proof2. Since I'm taking real analysis, I wonder if it is possible to use taylor series to show this in an elegant way.
