Provide a rough derivation of Stirling’s approximation. There are at least two ways to approach this.
(a) Approximate the derivative of ln n! using the finite-difference expression ln n! – ln(n-1)!, and then integrate your result.
(b) Express ln n! as ln n +ln (n-1)+ ln(n-2)+…, then approximate the sum using an integral.
