So we know that if x2n converges to L, for every epsilin there exists N1 such that for every n>N1 |x2n-L|<epsilon

and for every epsilon there exists N2 such that for every n>N2 |x_{2n+1}-L|<epsilon

So if we define N=max{N1,N2} we will get that for every n>N |x2n-L|<epsilon and |x_{2n+1}-L|<epsilon

And therefor for every n>N we can say |xn-L|<epsilon? because our n is either odd or even, in both cases we get |xn-L|<epsilon .

Is my logic correct? And is it formal? How can I make it more clear ? I think it's correct however coming to the conclusion that |xn-L|<epsiulon was too fast.
