Re: [HP Prime] "Error while checking exact value with approximate value, returning both!" Message #11 Posted by Mark Hardman on 5 Dec 2013, 5:31 p.m., in response to message #5 by Chris Pem10
Chris,
In your first example you are taking the limit as b goes to 0 of (1 + b). This result is 1. You are then taking that result to the power of 1/b. This gives the correct result of 1 (1^n=1).
You need to add an extra pair of parenthesis starting at the limit and closing at the end of the expression. This gives the correct result of e.
limit(1+b,b,0)^(1/b) = 1
limit((1+b)^(1/b),b,0) = e
