Homework Help: Writing The Limit Of A Sequence With A Factorial

  1. Sep 30, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The sequence is [itex]a_n = \frac{n^P}{e^n}[/itex]


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    If I did L'Hopital's rule P times, would the final product look like:

    [itex]P!\times lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} = \frac{1}{e^n}[/itex] ?

    I just wasn't sure if I had wrote it properly. Thank you.
