### Bounding a $\ln(x)/\ln(y)$ expression where L'Hopital's rule doesn't help

How might I upper bound the following within the unit interval as $p\to0$? $$\frac{\ln(p)-\ln\left(\frac{x}{1-x}\right)}{\ln\left(1-\frac{(1-x)\ln(1-x)+x}{x^2}\right)}$$ The quotient is upper ...

### Given that for each $n,\;x_n^n + x_n-1= 0,$ is $(x_n)_n$ convergent?

Prove that for $n\ge 2$, the equation $x^n + x-1 = 0$ has a unique root in $[0,1]$. If $x_n$ denotes this root, prove that $(x_n)_n$ is convergent and find its limit. The limit is $1$. But to find ...

### Limit of partial sums where summands also depend on limit index

Let $a_i, a_i^n \in \mathbb{R}_{\geq 0}, i, n \in \mathbb{N}$ such that the series $\sum\limits_{i=1}^\infty a_i$ exists and $\lim\limits_{n \to \infty} a_i^n = a_i$ for all $i$. I would like to prove ...

### How to evaluate a limit that contains an integral?

This question is from the JEE Advanced 2007 Paper 1 (Question 49). The question states: $$\lim \limits_{x \to \frac{\pi}{4}} \frac{\int^{\sec^2x}_2 f(t)\ dt}{x^2-\frac{\pi^2}{16}}$$ I tried solving it ...

### Evaluating $\lim_{(x, y) \to (0, 0)} \frac{xy^2}{x^2-y^2}$ [duplicate]

What is the value of $$\lim_{(x, y) \to (0, 0)} \frac{xy^2}{x^2-y^2}$$ I have already tried the two paths result and I think now that the limit does exist and it is equals to 0. But i really cannot ...

### Is the statement $\sum_{j=1}^\infty x_j<\infty,~(x_j\ge0)$ $\Longrightarrow \lim _{k \to \infty} \sum_{j=k}^\infty x_j=0$ true?

As the title states, I would like to know if the statement $$\sum_{j=1}^{\infty} x_{j}<\infty \Longrightarrow \lim _{k \to \infty} \sum_{j=k}^{\infty} x_{j}=0,\qquad x_j\in [0,\infty)$$ is always ...

### Is this function continuous [closed]

Suppose that $f: (0,1] → \mathbb{R}$ is such that $\lim \limits_{x \to a^-}f(x) =f(a)$ for all $a∈(0,1]$. Is $f$ continuous on $(0,1]$? I don't really know how to solve this question. I suspect that ...
