Use L’Hopital’s rule to find the limit of this sequence

(n^100)/(e^n)

...If you do L'Hop. Rule it would take forever, right? You would always get an (e^n) at the bottom and will have to use the L'Hop. rule 100 times to find the limit...100*n^99, 9900n^98, and etc.

Is there a shortcut to find the limit?

Or, am I doing something way wrong?

You didn't say what the aprroach value is for n

is n---> 0 ?

lim n^100/e^n)

= lim (100n^99)/(e^n)

= lim (9900n^98) / e^n

= ...

= lim (huge n^1)/e^n

= lim (more huge )/e^n

= lim (0/e^n)

= 0/1

= 0

what if n approaches infinity?
