    Rationalize the numerator by multiplying both numerator and denominator by [itex]\sqrt{n+ a)(n+b)}+ n[/itex]. Then divide both numerator and denominator by n.

    [/quote](b)[tex]lim _{n\rightarrow\infty}[/tex] (n!)1/n2[/QUOTE]
    If [itex]y= (n!)^{1/n^2}[/itex] then
    [tex]ln(n)= \frac{ln(n!)}{n^2}= \frac{ln(2)}{n^2}+ \frac{ln(3)}{n^2}+ \cdot\cdot\cdot+ \frac{ln(n)}{n^2}[/tex].
