Calculate limit (1/x^2) as x approaches infinity

Prove that Lim (3x)=6 as x approaches 2 using Epsilon-Delta definition.

Determine whether the series Sum(n!/n^n) n=1..infinity is absolutely convergent, conditionally convergent or divergent.

Test the series (in the attached file) for convergence or divergence by using the Comparison Test or the Limit Comparison Test.
