#### Question regarding limits of sequences and functions.

Given that lim n→∞(1+1/n)^n = e :(a) Show that lim n→∞(1-1/n)^n = lim k→∞(k/k+1)^(k+1)(b) Hence, show that lim n→∞(1-1/n)^n = 1/e(c) Therefore, using the Squeeze Theorem, find lim n→∞(n!/n^n).

#### How do absolute sign works with functions?

If ƒ(x)=|x| then how is:ƒ(x)={x for x>0 -x for x<0 0 for x=0}Since absolute sign don't take negatives into consideration should'nt x<0 be also equal to x?
