The command i put in was limit(log(-(5^(1/2)*((-347922205179541/562949953421312)^n - (910872158600853/562949953421312)^n))/5)/n,Inf) And the answer i got from matlab was ans = limit(log(-(5^(1/2)*((-347922205179541/562949953421312)^n - (910872158600853/562949953421312)^n))/5)/n, n = Inf)

Generally, it looks like you're basically taking the limit of log(a^n - b^n) with a few extra frills going on. This will be the same as the limit of log(a^n) as long as a > b, since the other factor will add at most a hyperbolic correction factor. Of course this can be simplified to n log a.

It's been years since I last used it, and I wasn't even all that good then.
