Riemann Sum. Limits.

So how to approach this one? $\frac1n\sum g(\frac{r}{n})$ . How to convert in this form? As I can see r and n will have different powers.

Since

$$\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}} + \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}} + \cdots + \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}} < \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}} + \cdots + \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}}$$

and

$$\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}} + \cdots + \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}} < \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}} + \cdots + \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}},$$

we have

$$\frac{n}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}} < \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}} + \cdots + \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}} < \frac{n}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}}.$$

As $$\frac{n}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{1 + \frac{1}{n}}} \to 1$$

and

$$\frac{n}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{1 + \frac{1}{n^2}}} \to 1$$

by the squeeze theorem,

$$\lim_{n\to\infty} \left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + 1}} + \cdots + \frac{1}{\sqrt{n^2 + n}}\right) = 1.$$
