I am wondering what the limit of (ln(x!))/x would be as x approaches 0... I have tried to trace the graph with the help of Desmos and found it to be around -0.5772... I tried to solve and prove it myself but was unable to. When I finally used Wolfram Alpha, it told me that the answer is The Negative Euler's Mascheroni Constant. I'm wondering how to prove it. Can someone please help me out?

Hello there..I think using the l'hospital rule might help.. Differentiating ln(x!) Leads us to the Euler mascheroni constant only...My opinion but ain't sure..

Hey there...! Thanks a lot for your reply! Yeah, differentiating both the sides definitely works but the problem is the functions rendered after applying the L'Hôpital's Rule are not elementary. I am actually looking for a creative way of solving it like how blackpenredpen himself solved the limit of ((n!)/(n^n))^(1/n) as n approaches infinity in this video (

Yes I have seen that video...Its a really good method.. I am also trying to find a similar method which is creative and Diff from the complex l'hospital approach
