Hints/Tips re: Way without calculus? HINT- NO SPOILER Comment 3 of 3 |
(In reply to Way without calculus? by Gamer)

I agree the proper category is calculus.

However, there is a solution  requiering neither the use of the series nor the explicit calculation of values- just checking the sign of the derivative of a certain function.

Calculus- yes;  calculation  -   no. 

Did I disclose too  much?
