I mean, if it converges to 9/7 at E26, why expect things to change much "near the end"? The problem was taken from an online Calc quiz at (The) Ohio State. I double checked my answer with a 50G and found the error. As for their "rationale" for toying around with exponets approaching 70: perhaps some guys just like watching the world burn. I'll leave with a few quotes: "We didn't know if we could find the limit of a polynomial fraction with an exponent approaching 70... but it was our duty to try... That's the way I looked at it. Now you've got guys in space vehicles, smoking along at exponents greater than 70... speed is relative..."
