# On a limit with summation

Let . Prove that

Solution

Let us begin with the simple observation that

Now, here comes a handy lemma.

Lemma: Let be a differentiable function with continuous derivative. It holds that

Proof: The derivation of the theorem follows from application of MVT in the interval .

Hence the limit follows to be .

Note: Applying Euler  – MacLaurin we have
