(try using the X2 and X2 buttons just above the Rreply box )

tell us what you think, and why, and then we'll comment! (and please use the homework forum in future)

Sorry I am new to this forum.

I thought of dividing both terms with the term that approached infinity more rapidly which was n!. which gave me 0, but then I saw that if 2n was actually 10n for example it would approach infinity more rapidly which would give me ∞ but I'm not entirely sure. So I got confused.

try dividing one term by the next term instead (ie An/An+1)

2*2*2*2*2... / n(n-1)(n-2)(n-3)...

So the limit goes to 0 it's clear now thanks.
