I understand that the result of (1+(1/x))<sup>x</sup> as x gets very large approachese. What I'm confused on is this... Is what I just stated not the same thing as lim x-->infinity (1+(1/x))<sup>x</sup>? I'm asking because it seems to me that the answer of lim x-->infinity (1+(1/x))<sup>x</sup> is 1. I'm obviously a bit confused. Thanks.
