# Math Help - A limit of a sequence problem

1. ## A limit of a sequence problem

Suppose that $a_n\rightarrow L$. Show that if $a_n\leq M$ for all $n$, then $L\leq M$.
Prove by contradiction and by choosing $\epsilon =\frac{L-M}{2}$.

I have a standard proof for how to solve this, but not a contradictory proof (which is what I need). Can someone help with that?

2. If you assume that $L>M$ then $\epsilon=\frac{L-M}{2}>0$ makes sense.

$\left| {a_n - L} \right| < \frac{{L - M}}
