I am looking at the limit as x goes to infinity of x/(x+1)...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you plug in infinity, won't it produce an indeterminate form inf/inf ? And then by taking the derivative, I get 1/(x+1)^2, which goes to 0... So can anyone explain why the limit is 1 as opposed to 0?
