Calculus - ratio test

infinity of the summation n=1: (e^n)/(n!) [using the ratio test]

my work so far:

= lim (n->infinity) | [(e^n+1)/((n+1)!)] / [(e^n)/(n!)] |

= lim (n->infinity) | [(e^n+1)/((n+1)!)] * [(n!)/(e^n)] |

= lim (n->infinity) | ((e^n)(e^1)(n!)) / ((n+1)(n!)(e^n)) |
..the e^n & n! cancels out

= lim (n->infinity) | (e^1) / (n+1) |

im stuck here.. how do i finish this?
and also to find out if it's Divergent (L>1), convergent (L<1), or fails (L=1)?

The limit is zero. So, L = 0 therefore the series is convergent.

The value of the summation is e^e - 1

    Are these correct? lim x->0 (x)/(sqrt(x^2+4) - 2) I get 4/0= +/- infinity so lim x->0+ = + infinity? and lim x->0- = + infinity? lim x->1 (x^2 - 5x + 6)/(x^2 - 3x + 2) I get 2/0, so lim x-> 1+ = - infinity? and lim x->1- = +
