What about integral inequality ? Using euler integral $\displaystyle \int_{0}^{\infty}x^n e^{x}dx> \int_{n}^{\infty} x^n e^{x}dx >n^n \int_{n}^{\infty} e^{x} dx$ Maybe there are other ways but i tried integrals Last edited by idontknow; December 24th, 2018 at 06:18 AM.

Did you try applying the bounds on n! given by Stirling's formula?

The range of x will be dependent on n. For example $n=1,\ x\ge 1$, for $n=2,\ x\ge \sqrt{2}$. General formula $x\ge \frac{n}{(n!)^{1/n}}$ Use Stirling's formula to estimate for large n. Last edited by mathman; December 24th, 2018 at 12:40 PM.
