How to compute this limit with different operations of $x$? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

In another answer I saw, there is this expression

$$\lim _{ x\rightarrow \infty }{ x{ \left( 1-\frac { 1 }{ x } \right) }^{ x } } =\lim _{ x\rightarrow \infty }{ \frac { x }{ e } } =\infty$$

Can anyone show me how to get to this result? There's a multiplication by $x$, a division by $x$, and an exponent of $x$, so it seems like a good example to figure out how all of this interplays with each other when raising $x$ to infinity.

• Do you know that $\lim_{x\to\infty}\left(1+\frac yx\right)^x=e^y$? – Regret Apr 1 '15 at 18:56
• It's an application of $$\lim_{x \to \infty}\big(f(x)g(x)\big) =\left(\lim_{x \to \infty}f(x)\right)\left(\lim_{x \to \infty}g(x)\right)$$ – Arthur Apr 1 '15 at 18:56
• Yes, it would. The only problematic case is $\pm \infty\cdot 0$. – Arthur Apr 1 '15 at 18:59
