How to compute $\lim_{n\rightarrow\infty}e^{-n}\left(1+n+\frac{n^2}{2!}\cdots+\frac{n^n}{n!}\right)$ [duplicate]

There is a probabilistic method to solve it. But I am not familiar with probability. I am trying to compute it by analytic method, such as using L Hospital's rule or Stolz formula, but they are not ...

How can I compute this limit? [duplicate]

I have to compute $$\lim_{n\to\infty} \exp(-n)\left(1+n+\frac{n^2}{2}+\ldots+\frac{n^n}{n!} \right)$$ I think the value is 1, but i don't know how to proof this. Do I have to estimate the remainder ...

Central value of the partial exponential function [duplicate]

I need help calculating the central value of the partial exponential function : $$\lim_{n \to \infty} e^{-n} \sum^n_{k=0} \frac{n^k}{k!}$$ fd
Is the sequences$\{S_n\}$ convergent? [duplicate]
Let $$S_n=e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^n\frac{n^k}{k!}$$ Is the sequences$\{S_n\}$ convergent? The following is my answer,but this is not correct. please give some hints. For all $x\in\mathbb{R}$, \lim_{n\...
How to prove $\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^{n}\frac{n^k}{k!} = \frac{1}{2}$? [duplicate]
How to prove that: $\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} e^{-n}\sum_{k=0}^{n}\frac{n^k}{k!} = \frac{1}{2}$ It's about the Normal Approximation to Poisson distribution. But it only calculates part of the ...
