Thread: One to the power of infinity, e or 1? | Forums

1. We all know that lim of (1+1^x)^x as x increases without bound and lim of 1^x as x goes to infinity can be said as 1 to the power of infinity (gotten from the subtitution of x to be infinity as the rule of limit applies in standard circumstance). Alright, but we all also have known that the former is equal e, and the latter equal one. So, we have the first, one to the power of infinity is equal e, and the other one is equal 1. Any meaningful thought on this matter? My mind has been full of it lately.

3. the loneliest number,

of course its one,

but if you ask wit he'll say "isn't it obvious, its 42"

5. 1^1=1.
1^2=1
1^3=1
1^4=1
1^5=1
1^6=1
1^7=1
1^8=1
1^9=1
1^x=1
x could be any number. No matter how many times you multiply 1 by itself, it's not going to change.

6. You can't just say that it's to be equal one, since on those both circumstances (two limits that I've mentioned on my first post), both are equal 1^infinity, if you are doing it algebraically, but on the other hand, we all know the fact that lim of (1+1/x)^x as x gets increased without bound is e (2.72.....) and the lim of 1^x as x goes to infinity is equal one. Those two limits are suggesting 1^infinity, but they're not equal. The conclusion that can be derived from this is either it's undefined, or unfound.

7. undefined seems to fit a multitude of situations

8. Got some interesting facts from Dr. Math:

The question:
"We feel that 1^infinity = 1, infinity^0 = 1, and 0^0 = 1. Part of these conclusions come from the fact that 0^infinity = 0 and 0^(-infinity) = infinity. Could you please explain these determinate and indeterminate forms?"

"These forms are called indeterminate because if you replace 1, 0, and infinity by functions the limits of which are 1, 0, and infinity as x -> 0, then the limit of the compound function does not exist, in the sense that the limit depends on which functions you choose."

9. I think it's not a real number.

10. That's also the problem. When we deal with infinity, we're dealing on what you might want to call a not real number. Limit is only to find a certain y-value (could be anything, but let just say it's y) as x gets closer and closer to a certain number. It's not to say that x is exactly that number. That's why whenever we have "0/0" on limit, we can reduce them out, as it's not really a "0/0" but so damn close to it, as though it could be assumed as it, but it's still not.
