$\displaystyle \lim\frac{n^{\frac{1}{n}}}{2^{\frac{1}{2n}} n^{\frac{1}{2n}}} = \lim\frac{n^{\frac{1}{n}  \frac{1}{2n}}}{2^{\frac{1}{2n}}}$ $\lim 2^{\frac{1}{2n}} = 1$ so we have $\displaystyle \lim n^{\frac{1}{2n}} = e^{ \lim \frac{ln(n)}{2n}}$ Use lhopitals (probably mispelled) $\displaystyle \lim \frac{ln(n)}{2n} = \lim \frac{ 1}{2n} = 0$ So, we have $ e^{ \lim \frac{ln(n)}{2n}} = 1 $ and therefore the whole limit is $1$ Last edited by Greens; June 8th, 2019 at 09:01 AM.

establish that $\lim \limits_{n\to \infty}\sqrt[n]{\dfrac n c}=1,~\forall c>0$ and the rest is trivial

$\lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \dfrac{\sqrt[n]{n}}{\sqrt[2n]{2n}} = \\ \lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \dfrac{\sqrt[2n]{n^2}}{\sqrt[2n]{2n}} = \\ \lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \sqrt[2n]{\dfrac{n^2}{2n}} = \\ \lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \sqrt[2n]{\dfrac{n}{2}} = \\ \lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \sqrt[n]{\dfrac{n}{4}}$ consider $\sqrt[n]{\dfrac{n}{c}},~c>0$ $\ln \left(\sqrt[n]{\dfrac n c}\right) = \dfrac 1 n\left(\ln(n)  \ln(c)\right)$ $\lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \ln \left(\sqrt[n]{\dfrac n c}\right) = \lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \dfrac 1 n\left(\ln(n)  \ln(c)\right) = 0$ (I waved my hands that the first term goes to zero but it's clearly so) By the substitution theorem for limits $\lim \limits_{x\to \infty} \sqrt[n]{\dfrac n c} = \\ \exp\left(\lim \limits_{x\to \infty} \ln \left(\sqrt[n]{\dfrac n c}\right)\right) = e^0 = 1$ and so $\lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \dfrac{\sqrt[n]{n}}{\sqrt[2n]{2n}} = \lim \limits_{n\to \infty} \sqrt[n]{\dfrac{n}{4}} = 1$
