## How do I show that 1/x > ln(1+1/x) for any positive integer x? [closed]

I know this statement is true... but how do I prove it?

Alas, but this is not the right place to ask this question. Please try math.stackexchange.com instead. – Deane Yang Oct 5 2011 at 4:20
For any $y>0$ we have $\ln(1+y)=\int_0^y \frac{dt}{1+t} < \int_0^y 1 = y$. Now write $y=1/x$ on the two sides, done. BTW this question is not appropriate on this site, read the FAQ. Voting to close. – GH Oct 5 2011 at 4:22
