hi mathteacher005

Welcome to the forum and thanks for the link.

I will convert your post so that the expression is in  Latex and the link easier to use.

Hello! The answer is \lim_{x\to\infty }\left({{2\,{\it cx}+1}\over{1-2\,{\it cx}}}\right)^{{{1}\over{x}}} = 1.
You can check it here.

My friend show me few weeks ago and now my students always use it for checking the answers:) Good Luck!

I use Schick's or Gillette's razor for a better shave.

Being simplest doesn't makng true. And, yes, I am familiar with the Occam's razor.

Isn't the simplest typo that she wrote 4 when she meant 1?

This looks too much like a book problem. I do not think that is what it wants.

Maybe the questioner just wants the OP to see that the answer is 1. To spot the inconsistency.

Yes. So I am thinking that it might be a typo of the function whose limit is being taken.

The first limit is 1 for every c.

There is no c that will give a limit of 4. You said so yourself. The limit is independent of c. That is why it is trivial.

Not really. The question would be close to trivial. I think the question is more likely to be asking for the constant c for which a limit has the value 4 and then finding the same limit but with 2c instead of the c, whose value we now know.

But doesn't it follow?

I don't think that is the misprint.

bobbym

Yes, it should read 1 instead of 4.

find the limit of ((1+2cx)/(1-2cx))^(1/x) as x tends to infinity

So the answer should be 1 because 2c=c.

Maybe it is a misprint or a typo.

Hi;

That is what I am getting, so the question does not make any sense.
