Not quite, although you started correctly. The limit in this case is as $x\to\infty$, so you want to see what happens when $x$ gets large. This means...

Hi Goody, and welcome to MHB! To prove that \lim_{x\to\infty}\frac{x-1}{x+2} = 1, you have to show that, given $\varepsilon > 0$, you can find $N$...

The key to this lies in Theorem 1.3.5, which says that $x\in\overline{A} \Longleftrightarrow U\cap A\ne\emptyset$ for every (open) nbd of $x$. ...

This follows from the statement immediately before Proposition 1.3.2, where it says that $A$ is open if and only if $A = A^\circ$. Since $A^\circ$ is...

Your calculation is correct, and the answer is not one of the listed options. Maybe you should check whether you read the question correctly.

1. Thanks, you are doing a great job. I went through your Laplace transform tutorial. It is a good practice to try the Laplace transform of some new functions, and it is fun as well.
2. Er, DW, your .sig seem to be getting out of the separator of every post, so sometimes they are almost unreadable. Can you do something about it?
3. Wow, thanks for the new tutorial DW, it's just what I needed, a brief series of values of polygamma function and a closed formula in general. Thanks again! (To reply Visitor Messages, first click on "View Conversation" then reply to it)
4. Thanks for the tip, Balarka!! I've corrected it now... Was referencing a paper on arXiv.
5. DW, in your #3 post in "Generalized Log-Trig series related to the Hurwitz Zeta", shouldn't the Dirichlet characters be defined over $\mathbb{Z}/8\mathbb{Z}$ instead of what is given? $\mathbb{Z}/8$ is a weird beast...
6. DW, you should post those special value of Clausen function you have found out on the wiki article. It's nearly stub, I wonder why they didn't add that tag to it.
7. Not a bad idea, but it takes all the fun out of it...

It is pretty funny, mind... Folks join up, can get their heads around mind-bending equations, but fall foul of basic forum software. Oh dear!
8. Some have even humorously suggested we need to present a User's Manual to people when they join due to all the features we have here. Perhaps someday I will write such a manual...hehehe.
9. Thanks Mark! Just been toying around a bit and found out where to go. Cheers for your help!
10. Hey Gethin,

Here is a link to a topic explaining how to respond to visitor messages so that it gets posted on the recipient's wall:
