Sidebar on Mathematica

Mathematica is a handy tool for cranking out any number of digits intranscendental numbers such as $e$:

In[]:
  N[E,50]
Out[]:
  2.7182818284590452353602874713526624977572470937
Alternatively, we can compute $(1+\ for small $\:
In[]:
  (1+delta)^(1/delta) /. delta->0.001
Out[]:
  2.716923932235594
In[]:
  (1+delta)^(1/delta) /. delta->0.0001
Out[]:
  2.718145926824926
In[]:
  (1+delta)^(1/delta) /. delta->0.00001
Out[]:
  2.718268237192297
What happens if we just go for it and set delta to zero?
In[]:
  (1+delta)^(1/delta) /. delta->0
                                 1
