Prove that $\displaystyle \lim_{n \to \infty} \sqrt[n]{n!} = \infty$ According to me it is equal to $\displaystyle e^{\lim_{n \to \infty} \frac{\ln(n!)}{n}}$ so I would need to use l'hÃ´pital, but what is the derivative of $\displaystyle \ln(n!) $?

You could use Stirling's formula instead, so you might find it useful to look up how that is proved.
