Prove xn = 2/n + 5/n^2 converges to zero. Is this a valid proof? We know 1/n converges to zero. Hence, by Lemma 10 so does 2/n What shall i say about to complete the answer/proof?

Which Plato has done nicely. What is your objection?

Originally Posted by Plato I am sorry, but that laughable? that emoticon is (skype thinking). to prove convergence, are we only interested in larger n i.e we ignore 0<n<6 as in this question.
