# Find the limit of exponent/factorial sequence [duplicate]

I don't know how to even stoke it...

$$\lim_{n\to \infty } \frac{2^n}{n!} =$$

HINT

Prove that $$0 < \dfrac{2^n}{n!} \leq \dfrac4n$$ for all $n \in \mathbb{Z}^+$ using induction and then use squeeze theorem.

$$\frac{2\cdot2\cdot2\cdot2\cdots\cdots2}{1\cdot2\cdot3\cdot4\cdots\cdots n}$$ In the next step after the one above, a lone "$2$" is added on top and $n+1$ on the bottom. The number $2/(n+1)$ is small. At each step you multiply by a small number. (And they keep getting even smaller, although that is not essential to the problem.

That should tell you what limit they will approach.

To answer it yourself, look at the last $n/2$ terms of $n!$. They are each at least $n/2$. Compare the product of these with $2^n$ to show that the ratio $2^n/n!$ goes to zero.
