Hint:- Use expansions of \[{\left( {1 + x} \right)^{ - n}}\] and \[{{\text{e}}^x}\].

As we know the expansion of \[{{\text{e}}^x}\] is,

\[ \Rightarrow {e^x} = 1 + x + \dfrac{{{x^2}}}{{2!}} + ........ + \dfrac{{{x^n}}}{{n!}}\] (1)

From equation 1. We can say that,

\[ \Rightarrow {{\text{e}}^x} > 1 + x\]

Now, taking log both sides of the above equation. It becomes,

\[ \Rightarrow \log {e^x} > \log (1 + x)\] (2)

Solving above equation. It becomes,

\[ \Rightarrow 1 + x = {\left( {1 - \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)^{ - 1}}\] (3)

As we know the expansion of \[{(1 + y)^{ - 1}}\].

\[ \Rightarrow {(1 + y)^{ - 1}} = 1 - y + {y^2} - {y^3} + .......{\text{ }}\] (4)

Now, putting the value of \[{\text{y = }}\left( { - \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)\] in equation 4. We get,

\[ \Rightarrow {\left( {1 - \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)^{ - 1}} = 1 + \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}} + {\left( {\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)^2} + .....\] (5)

And now putting the value of \[x = \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}\] in equation 1. We get,

\[ \Rightarrow {e^{\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}}} = 1 + \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}} + \dfrac{{{{\left( {\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)}^2}}}{{2!}} + ........ + \dfrac{{{{\left( {\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)}^n}}}{{n!}}\] (6)

From equation 3, 5 and 6. We can say that,

\[ \Rightarrow 1 + x > {e^{\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}}}\]

Taking log both sides of the above equation. We get,

\[ \Rightarrow \log (1 + x) > \log {e^{\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}}}\]

As we know that, \[\log (e) = 1\].

So, we can write above equation as,

\[ \Rightarrow \log (1 + x) > \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}\] (7)

Therefore, from equation 2 and 7. We can say that,

\[ \Rightarrow x > \log (1 + x) > \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}\]

Hence Proved.

Note:- Whenever we came up with this type of problem where log is

Involved, then we should use the expansion of \[{{\text{e}}^x}\], \[{\left( {1 + x} \right)^n},{\left( {1 + x} \right)^{ - n}}\] and

\[\log (1 + x)\] and then try to manipulate their expansions to get the required

result. As this will be the easiest and efficient way to prove the result.

\[ \Rightarrow 1 + x = {\left( {1 - \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)^{ - 1}}\] (3)

As we know the expansion of \[{(1 + y)^{ - 1}}\].

\[ \Rightarrow {(1 + y)^{ - 1}} = 1 - y + {y^2} - {y^3} + .......{\text{ }}\] (4)

Now, putting the value of \[{\text{y = }}\left( { - \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)\] in equation 4. We get,

\[ \Rightarrow {\left( {1 - \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)^{ - 1}} = 1 + \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}} + {\left( {\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)^2} + .....\] (5)

\[ \Rightarrow {e^{\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}}} = 1 + \dfrac{x}{{1 + x}} + \dfrac{{{{\left( {\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)}^2}}}{{2!}} + ........ + \dfrac{{{{\left( {\dfrac{x}{{1 + x}}} \right)}^n}}}{{n!}}\] (6)

From equation 3, 5 and 6. We can say that,
