# Let $f : R\rightarrow R$ be a positive increasing function with $\lim\limits_{x\to 0}\large\frac{f(3x)}{f(x)}$$=1. Then \lim\limits_{x\to \infty}\large\frac{f(2x)}{f(x)} = ? (a)\;\large\frac{2}{3}$$\qquad(b)\;\large\frac{3}{2}$$\qquad(c)\;3\qquad(d)\;1 Can you answer this question? ## 1 Answer 0 votes f(x) is a positive increasing function 0 < f(x) < f(2x) < f(3x) \Rightarrow 0 < 1< \large\frac{f(2x)}{f(x)}$$ < \large\frac{f(3x)}{f(x)}$
$\Rightarrow \lim\limits_{x\to \infty}1 \leq \lim\limits_{x\to \infty}\large\frac{f(2x)}{f(x)}$$\leq \lim\limits_{x\to \infty}\large\frac{f(3x)}{f(x)} By sandwich theorem \lim\limits_{x\to 0}\large\frac{f(2x)}{f(x)}$$=1$
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
